About Sylvia

I am 40 years old. I have 5 children ages 23, 20, 18(twins), and 16. I have worked in the medical field approximately 15 years. I worked 5 years as a nursing assistant at Thomas Hospital in Fairhope on the med-surg/orthopedic floor. I have also worked as a private duty caregiver. My love for people is why I love this field. Being able to assist someone who is sick, helping someone who might not have anyone to help them, being able to know that I did all I could for that person is what makes me love working in the medical field. My greatest accomplishment would be me graduating from college with my bachelor's degree in business administration with a minor in health care management.
