Hometown: Brookfield, CT

About yourself:  I’m married and have two children: Thomas, who is two years old, and Kimberly, eight months old.

Why and when did you choose your profession? My grandfather passed away when I was 12. While at the nursing home, I saw how the aides took care of him, and I knew then that I wanted to be able to give that sense of peace and comfort to others and their families.
