Meet Ava

The experience that I have caring for someone with special needs or who has a disability is good.

The reason why I am so passionate about what I do is because the disabled and people with special needs are left alone sometimes to do things for themselves or no one who came in the path care enough to help them. I love caring for those who are in need.
