Founder & Director
I’ve always felt that I had a calling to care for others, especially the geriatric community. I love assuring them that they are a valued individual and helping them maintain or regain their independence to the best of their ability. At Calling All Angels, we not only care about the clients we serve, but their families as well. It brings me joy to support the family by alleviating some of the responsibilities that come along with caring for a loved one. This way, they are able to spend quality time with their loved one without the stress or worry of the general upkeep. At Calling All Angels, we believe that in order to care for others, you must care for yourself first. I do this by hiking, kayaking, playing cards with my husband, and spending time with my family. I’ve realized the most significant factor in helping me maintain my ability to run a business, work with clients, attend school, and enjoy life, is to ask for help- not an attribute that comes easily to most people, but essential to care for oneself and others.
I have been in healthcare for twenty years. I started as a volunteer at a hospital, and just knew that I wanted to help people. Before I graduated high school, I got my Nurse Aide certification, and this is what I have done ever since. I love working with many different people- being able to adapt to different personalities is one of my best skills. I especially enjoy caring for those with Alzheimers and/or Dementia, which I have extensive training with. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, reading, being outdoors, and spending time with my husband and 3 kids. I also care for my mother, which is how I know that the work we do at Calling All Angels is important. This job isn't easy, nor is it for everyone. However, I am blessed to have the skills for home care, and to help our local geriatric community.
Home Health Aide
I have worked in a variety of healthcare settings for 30 years. I graduated from Paramedic school in 1998 and was licensed for 18 years. Most of my technical education is from working in the fire service for 12 years. I was certified in Pediatric Advanced Life Support, Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Fire Inspection, Firefighter Level II, and other related education. Making someone smile or laugh and bringing joy to life is what makes me happy. I do my best to make others comfortable asking for help because I know that is difficult for most people. I enjoy working with people of all ages/abilities. I have a 14 year old son with severe autism, so I have gained an extreme amount of patience over the years. My clients are like family to me. They say if you love your job, you will never work a day in your life. My job and the people I serve bring so much joy to my life, it doesn't feel like work, but a gift. I am truly blessed.
Home Health Aide
I have worked in home care for 12 years. I have experience working with all different ages, however I most enjoy working with the elderly. I hearing stories about their past and all they've accomplished in their lives. Having my clients' families trust me with their loves ones and being able to put their minds at ease is truly rewarding. I love helping people enjoy life a little bit more, and engaging in activities that bring them joy. Sometimes doing a puzzle, conversing about past times, or simply watching a TV show is all that someone needs in order to make their day the very best. In my personal time, I like spending time with my family either cooking, camping, or simply watching a movie together. I take great pride in my work and in knowing I can lend a helping hand.
Home Health Aide
I've been a caregiver for over 13 years and became an STNA 7 years ago. I loved everything I learned. Prior to this career, I was a stay-at-home mom to 4 sons. When it was time to get back to the workforce I saw an ad in the township paper for a Home Health Aid. I answered the ad and "knew" it was for me! I enjoy helping people from all walks of life with various needs and personalities. It's amazing to think had I never entered this field I wouldn't have gotten to know so many wonderful people and had the chance to care for them. It is a blessing to care for others. I'm a grandmother and enjoy scrapbooking, working on family history, sitting on my front porch, and collecting dolls.
Home Health Aide
I have been in an array of healthcare settings for over 10 years. I went to school and received a Certificate in Dental Assisting, an associate degree in Applied Science for Surgical Technology, and am a Certified Sterile Technician, and a Home Health Aid. I love working with people of all ages in different environments. I care for my clients just as I would my own family. The families I have worked with have become a part of my family. Clients say I go above and beyond! It is my honor to provide love and care for each individual and I wouldn't settle for less. I'm married, have four children, and have three grandchildren that are the light of my life. I love cooking and baking, gardening, crafting, travel, beaches, sports, animals, and ziplining!
