Lora’s Bio

I began working as a Candy Striper in high school and volunteered at the local hospital. After high school I then got a certification as a nurses assistant. I worked for the Dept. of Social Services in home health care for a few years then went to work as an industrial nurse and worked there for four years until the company relocated. I left the health care field for many years taking care of the needs of my high functioning autistic son. This is what I have done helping my son to get through school and graduate but all the while helping and running to the aid of a friend or family member circulates through my blood. I thrive on helping other's. I have been a care giver to two separate individuals providing assistance with hospice care and have done this at no charge.

"Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens."
~Khalil Gibran
