With her caring nature and dedication to each charge, she became a part of their families as well. They treated her as a trusted member of their families and respected her opinions regarding the care of their loved ones. Tanisha was passionate about her work and gave her all to each of those entrusted into her care. Blessed with a giving spirit, Tanisha was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need.
