I am an empathic, caring, and patient person. In 1990 I owned a cleaning business for seniors. It rapidly became a caretaking experience. I helped with grooming assistance, doctor visits, fun outings, cooking, cleaning, and grief counseling. In 1999, my mother moved in with me. She was on oxygen and eventually wheelchair-bound. I cared for her at home until she passed away in 2000. I went on to partner in a company that distributed and repaired medical equipment. I am a mother to two successful daughters who have adopted six children. My grandchildren are now ages 16 - 25, we learn from each other. In December of 2019, I obtained my BS in Psychology. My goal is to help make a difference in the lives of others.
