Nurse Supervisor Operations Lead
I hold the position as a Nurse Supervisor Operations Lead at Comfort Keepers and have been a nurse for over 20 years. I have an Associate Degree of Science in Nursing from County College of Morris, and currently taking online classes from University of Phoenix.
Since the 6th grade, I have always wanted to be a nurse. My passion is to help others and to make a difference in my client's lives. I have worked in hospital settings for so many years. From being in the position I am in today, I learned how much more care the clients need once they are home.
With my knowledge and professional skills that I have acquired throughout my nursing career, I can help educate, guide and provide the necessary resources and tools to clients and family members. With this information, they can feel more at ease knowing that they have a great support system to keep themselves and loved ones at home in a safe and comfortable environment.
I work closely with the staff in regards to matching the right caregiver to the right client. Also, supervising caregivers at each visit and treating each client with respect and dignity, as well as providing safety and security to the elderly in their own homes.
