About Shannon

I have always had a strong passion for helping people especially the elderly. I started 17 years ago and have plenty of references. My personal achievement would have to be that I was able to achieve my dream of being able to care for people and treat them like they are family.

I became a caregiver because I have seen so many elder people without family support that I wanted to be the next best thing. I love the connection you get with the clients. It feels genuine. I'm proud of finishing high school and knowing where I wanna go in life. I am a wife and a mother of three. I, one day wanna open my own business helping the youth in my community with daily emergency support.

Hello, my name is Peyton Alfrey. I have been in nursing for nearly 3 years and have had two previous jobs working in the ICU. I am now going back to school full time in pursuit of my doctorate degree in nurse anesthesia. I am qualified to take care of older people with diverse health conditions. I am CPR certified and also have my BLS, ACLS, and PALS certifications. I am looking for part time work on my breaks from school as well as a day or two per week. I am a very patient, caring professional, and I thoroughly enjoy helping others. I love what I do, and I love getting to know my patients! I currently travel between Logan and Charleston, but I am originally from Logan, WV. I have a great family, fiance, dog, and cat. Some of my hobbies include being outdoors (fishing, camping, hiking) and going to church.
