Carina’s Bio

I am a Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) and have about 9 months of experience working in a convalescent home with elderly and rehabilitative patients. I assisted them with bathing, feeding, walking, and maintained their overall health and social habits on a daily basis.

I am trained in emergency situations such as heart attacks and choking, and also have CPR/Basic Life Support certification from the American Heart Association.

I love serving others and helping families out in my free time. Whether it is caring for children, elderly people, or pets, I am open to all circumstances.

Carina was so awesome! She came in on short notice and it was a great experience. Our younger son even acted out and pressed the limits by having an “accident” in his pants for attention (he has been potty trained for 2+ years). Carina was a total pro, diffused the situation, didn’t support the behavior, contacted us and even put his dirty clothes in the laundry! She was great and I highly recommend her.

Carina was punctual, kind, and the perfect sitter to play and take care of my two kids for a few hours while my husband and I were on a date . We look forward to hiring her again!
