I have great passion and compassion in helping those who cannot help themselves. This career is very rewarding and helps me to appreciate the many things I take for granted. I have so much joy, love and laughter to share with others. All these feelings come from having a brother with muscular dystrophy who left us at the age of 16. We were the best of friends and I felt so proud to have him as my brother. His comfort and joy consumed my every day and I feel very thankful to have him as my angel watching over me to this very day. I have so much to give to those in need and don't want to waste one minute of it. I understand the difficulties associated with not being able to do things for yourself and the pride and dignity we all need to possess in ourselves. I like to think that I make everyone I come in contact with feel they are just as important as the next guy and their feelings, desires and goals are very important to me. I have a calming nature and the ability to make others feel very comfortable. Thes are the reasons I know I make a great caregiver. ... more
