Nest & Care’s caregiver of the month is Marcelle Kamdem. Marcelle is a CNA. She also recently graduated from Wheeling Jesuit University in West Virginia with a degree in BS Biology. Her client Ms. Aaron, describes her as “kind, thoughtful and considerate. She’s very pleasant, sweet and happily willing to do whatever is needed no matter what the task is. She keeps us going so we never feel that our lives and lifestyle have gotten away from us. It’s great for the spirit!”

Marcelle is hardworking and very talented. We are proud and grateful to have her as part of our Nest & Care team. When she’s not working, she enjoys playing games, watching movies, playing soccer and cooking.

Thank You Marcelle for being an inspiration to all of us!
