Krista’s Bio

My name is Krista. I have been a caregiver for 1 year now, for the elderly. I was a stay at home Mom who raised 3 boys and managed a household for 18 years. I finished over 2 years of my Bachelors of Nursing degree and am planning to return to school to finish that in the fall.

I love caring for all people, young and old. But my preference now is taking care of seniors. I have found that they are the most appreciative of everything you do for them and it gives me great pleasure to give them the ability to reside in their home and remain independent for as long as they are able.

I would love the opportunity to meet you and your loved one.
