About Me

I am a 38 year old wife and mother of five children. My son is 20 and I have four daughters aged 16, 13, 10 and 9. I have been married to my husband for 14 years. I was born in New Castle Indiana and raised here there and everywhere in all the little towns in this area. I moved to Ky when I was 17, stayed for 10 years and moved back home in 2007. We have lived in our current home for 8 years now and I hope to pay it off soon and become a homeowner. Throughout the years I have been a homemaker, CNA, caregiver, DSP a few other odd things and now an HHA. I am now seeking to close the chapter in healthcare and transition into a position where I can put to use all of the skills I have learned along the way.
