Hello, my name is Ann, and I have a background in providing care to people ranging in age from infancy to elders. My passion for supporting others to meet their goals and achieve self-determination led me to obtain an advanced degree in social work. After over 10 years of working professionally in this field, I have moved back to my roots as a provider of direct care-giving services in order to be able to engage in a deeper quality of relationship with individual clients and families, while also providing my own family with more flexibility in my schedule. I have worked in a variety of home settings over the years and have also worked in medical and healthcare settings, thus am versed in assisting folks with navigating these spaces, including with medical appointments and coordination of medical care.
My formal training in health advocacy and knowledge of individual and family dynamics enhances the breadth of care I am able to provide. In the meantime, my patience and warmth, excellent communication skills and compassion for others are the attributes that led me to this field in the first place!
I love spending time outside and, as a native of the Pittsboro/ Chapel Hill area, am quite familiar with local places to visit. I am also equally as comfortable helping to create a supportive and nurturing experience for clients in their own homes. I enjoy cooking healthy meals and also have an appreciation for whatever your version of "comfort food" may be!
I look forward to connecting with you and speaking further about an opportunity to work together. All the best in your search for a caregiver.
