Hi! I am Melissa. After many years of working in an office administrative capacity, I needed a change. I needed to do something that made a difference in people's lives. I love people, and I am a natural-born caregiver! I have raised two healthy, happy, and successful daughters, and so I found myself needing to find new people that required my care. I attended nursing assistance training through the American Red Cross, and those I met within that setting noted my personable nature, high energy level, and caring commitment. The clinical setting, employment in an elder care community, caring for my mother during her years of Alzheimer's, as well as previous volunteerism in both hospital and school settings, has led me to where I am today ... searching to provide QUALITY care to those in need. I am extremely conscientious and hard-working. I like to make people, places, and things clean, orderly, and comforting.
