My background and how I became who I am today. I was a preschool teacher for 14 years with the same school. St Peters Episcopal Day School. Which I loved doing, In the month of October 2016 my dad who is retired Navy 22 yrs and retired NewportNews shipbuilding 27 yrs was diagnosed with advanced progressed ALS Lou Gherings disease. After being diagnosed he went bed-bound in two months. My mom had to retire also. I quit my job and I took such good care of my dad. I have references of the doctors and nurses that came to our home and asked if I was a nurse. I keped everything organized and neat and clean I educated my self and learned so much. My dad was a complicated patient. As the ALS progressed so fast he required a non invasive ventilator to help him breath, he had a peg tube "G"tube for food and water because he could not swallow safely , a chronic Foley catheter also a nephrostomy tube coming to drain urine from his kidney. I am very proud for the work that I did for caring for my dad. I also have lots of wound care experience. I enjoyed taking care of my dad, that when he did pass away Sept 2 2018 that I got my certification to care for the elderly and critically ill paitents. I flew through school because I had already taken care of the worst for two years. I enjoy caring for him so much that he has enlightened me on a whole new career path. My rate for pay is negotiable.

Im a positive outgoing person and full of energy maybe to much. That's one of the reasons why I feel I can make a difference in others lives. I have enough positivity and energy to share with everyone. While being in highschool I took a nursing class which allowed me to volunteer at the nursing home near my school which was amazing to me ! Everyone said I loved it way more than I should but they don't get to see the most amazing things that come from helping others! I also went to a elementary school that was down the road from my school which allowed me to volunteer with special education and pre development with pre schoolers. That also was so amazing im so lucky I had the chance to do that and or be allowed. So with all that I decided to go to Tide Water Community college in Virginia Beach and get my CNA. Which was the best choice I ever made. I will be finished by October 31 or November 10 we're waiting for an evaluator to pick up our testing date. While taking this class I have been doing clinicals at a nursing home near the school. I wasn't there long and after two days I had already fallen in love with all the residents. I love helping people and Its something that comes naturally to me. I love how they become family and to me it's helping me learn how to appreciate the little things in life. You also meet amazing people that having amazing story's. So I hope that you take me in to consideration because I promise I'll treat your family like it's my own.

I make a great caregiver because I genuinely enjoy helping others at their time of need. My ability to create a smile or crack a small joke to make someone feel better or that their situation is ok and normal for them, has given so many people a feeling of acceptance and a lack of feeling embarrassed or a burden during their illness(s). To me that is the most humbling and rewarding thing that can be achieved in a life time. To have the desire, skill and patience to achieve that is a gift. My life goal is to allow others to feel normal and that they have more than just a caregiver to help them with ADL's but a friend, a confidant and a partner in their illness. Going home each day knowing I made a families day better is my favorite part of everyday. You ask what attracted me to caregiving. Well it fell in my lap. I never planned on this when I went to school. One random day I was asked by a friend to help his wife whom had been diagnosed with ALS. The tears of fear, burden, embarrassment and lack of self worth she endured tore me to shreds. I quickly reversed all of that with the extreme amount of patience I have, the way I handled situations and encouraged her intelligence, ideas and beauty. It wound up turning into my need to having her in my life. Since then, in 2006 I have been steadily helping the ALS community with open arms and a humbled heart. Caregiving is something that I loved accidentally. I pay attention to detail so much that it made since why I gravitated so easily to this, having one on one care provides detailed superior care where you can focus and that person has all their needs and wants met unlike nursing homes or adult daycares. I take pride in my work and skills and one on one care allowed me to complete that. That gives me a since of inner self accomplishment. I feel to my core that caregiving is a relationship that has the gift of helping each other.

I've been working as a sales associate, working odd hours and always tired, so one day I decided to get my certificate and become a CNA. Since then, I realize that I like working with old people. It makes me happy to know that I helped get ready for the day and together we do activities together all through out the day to enhance their life. It makes me smile at the end of the day to know that I helped and I am needed. Even if I am not making a lot of money I am satisfied and happy because I can help other people .

I became a caregiver years ago. First doing daycare in my home. Then taking care of my terminally ill husband. Next I ran into a legally blind friend that I cared for until he passed. Found I enjoyed the work and that it was very rewarding. It brings me great joy to be with someone and help them through their golden days to the end.
