Carly received her cna certification from Lower Columbia College in Longview WA. Carly really loves her job, her two cats and one dog. Her first passion is writing, she loves to encourage other people who are thinking of becoming a cna to take that first step. Thats why she asked us if she could help with this site. Without Carly I dont think this website would be possible or in any way successful. Thank you Carly for all your input. Contact Carly at: [email protected]
