Jamie’s Bio

Caregiving is in my blood. It is my calling. I have been doing it all my life according to my family. Professionally, I have over 15 years experience in healthcare. Currently, I am working from home for a Cary, NC Gastroenterterology practice scheduling procedures which also requires using my clinical background. I have been blessed to be with them for 8 years. However, since moving back home to Greenville, I do not have the same ability for patient contact I had while living in Cary. Prior to moving to North Carolina in 2005, I worked in home health providing both medical and non-medical care. I had clients' I worked with on a regular basis per their request, as well as clients' that needed occasional respite care or companionship. I have a year and a half of nursing school experience leaving school only to take care of my husband's grandmother full time during the end stages of her Alzheimer's disease. I have been certified as a nursing assistant in both South Carolina and North Carolina. I am a firm believer in maintaining independence as long as it is healthy and safe to do so. I will help in doing that no matter where you are in your journey. My husband and I have one son who is 7 and when he's not in school or at practice gets my companionship wether he likes it or not! Please do not consider me unless you want to enjoy life, laugh, learn together and become friends. I have found over my career, the key to good companionship is a good friendship. Inevitably, I end up blessed beyond monetary value however, it is required I enter a rate for my services. My rates are based on individual situations. Having been in the position of helping to find respite care, home companionship and in researching transportation care for my current patients' I understand every situation is different and we will work together on that. I would love to volunteer my service's however, I am a provider to my family. Please know if you are interested in me I have flexability.
