“Angela is an exemplary paraprofessional earning her the nickname ‘angel of hospice aides.’ Angela understands that great care should not only focus on managing medical symptoms but should also be rooted in compassion and enrich every aspect of an individual’s wellbeing,” said Judy Cronin, RN, Clinical Care Manager at Interim HealthCare of Greenville, South Carolina. “Angela continuously goes above and beyond to demonstrate excellence and integrity in her care. Angela truly has a servant’s heart.”
