Growing up in Ghana, I helped my mum care for older family members. However, I never thought I would end up in the healthcare industry for 14 years. When I moved to the United States, I lived with my aunt in Maryland who owned a home care agency, and that was how I got my first job in health care. I realized earlier that I was able to make a difference in the lives of senior communities and the reward I received in return was unimaginable.



Over the years, I have had the privilege of serving in so many different capacities. I worked for Assisted Living and Memory Care communities and Home Care Agencies. I have learned so much about myself and life in general. I gave so much and received so many blessings and gratitude in return. I have gained lifetime friends, partners and mentors throughout this journey. Great people that I would say have become like family to me today.

I have worked for some great companies, but I would say CaraVita Home Care tops it for me. The family culture at CaraVita made my one-hour drive to work each day worth it. CaraVita Home Care created opportunities that allowed me to tap into talents I did not know I had. We did some great things by the small things we did together. I am glad my best experience in this industry is my last. It feels like I am leaving behind people that listened to me, guided me, inspired me, encouraged me, and more importantly mentored me. However, the knowledge and confidence I have gained has given me permission to go try new things.

Over the years, I adjusted and allowed myself to try new techniques and approaches to be better. After all, I had very little in common with the customers I helped. I always knew that our differences created opportunities that when applied well, will benefit us both. I had in my own way tried to pass this knowledge on to my co-workers. This principle shall guide me through the next phase of my life.

The next chapter for me is to be the new owner of a culturally inclusive restaurant in Cobb County. KUKUÉ KUISINE (coo-queer) will create a space where people who are curious, and open minded will enjoy exotic African cuisine and ambience. My restaurant is to bring the African continent to you the way I know it through food and activities. The table names shall represent big cities in Africa. The sound of talking drums and the display of beautiful, colorful African outfits shall make one feel like they are somewhere on the African continent in real time. These experiences shall be transferred into senior communities via catering or a food truck to help build inclusiveness, diversity, and great cultural working environment.

This is not a goodbye!
