Testimonials and Success Stories

Honestly, I have been working in this field for at least 20 years. I love working in this field because I enjoy helping others. Especially for our guys that cannot advocate or do for themselves.  Sometimes it is overwhelming but that's why it's good to go on vacation:) I look at this field like parenting...you know the things that you would want/don't want for your child. To sum it up if you have the Heart & stomach for this field then you will last a very long time:)
