I first got into this field of work because I watched my grandpa in a skilled nursing facility not get the care that he needed, and was treated unwell. Since then I have made it my passion to give my all to those who need help, and to try to teach others in the field. I treat my clients/residents as family and I'm still close with family members of previous clients. I would say I'm very confident in what I do and I always ask questions if I'm unsure about a clients care/needs. I enjoy my job as well and I enjoy spending time with those and hearing their life stories.
