People say that when you love what you do it shows. Well, it shows in how I care for my clients. I have loved every client; I have ever cared for, that is what makes me a great caregiver. I have a friend that believed that I would be a great caregiver. She hired me; I worked day shifts and learned a lot about care giving with my first client. I believe that care giving chose me, I am thankful it did. I am now a certified home health aide with over 6 years of experience. I am a kind, trustworthy caregiver with a very diverse skill set. I have decided to go back to college to pursue becoming a Registered Nurse. I am currently on the waiting list at Pima Community College. There is so much to love about working with seniors, I enjoy helping people live with quality and dignity. It is important to share my joy and bring brightness to my clients’ everyday lives. When clients have a medical set back or surgery it gives me joy help them regain some or most all of what they lost. That is one of the most rewarding feelings. My clients are wise, I have learned much from them. Each client holds a special place is my heart, I carry them with me wherever I go. I believe "Happy is the home with a full cookie jar.” therefore, I enjoy baking cookies and live life with zest. A few of my many talents are my organizational skills and positive get it done attitude. I hope to get to know you and work with your family!

Hello there! Thank your for taking the time to read a little bit about myself. I understand how overwhelming it could be for you and your family at this point. I also understand the emotional rollercoaster you all are enduring at this point trying to find the right fit for your loved one. Are you choosing the right person? Are they trustworthy? Are they reliable? I get it. The transition in itself is hard to accept at times. One minute everything is running smoothly, and the next, you are having to scramble and find help but don't know where to start, don't know if you're doing the right thing. You will read how many yrs one has been caregiving, how much experience they have. Is it all true? Or are they just making themselves look good so you can pick that one person. One can have all the experience in the world, but have no compassion. I can sit here and tell you how much experience I have and that I've been a CNA for 22 yrs. And I can also tell you that this has been my passion. But how will you know? Honestly, yes, it's great to know that some of us are telling you the truth about our background. That's what's scary about all this. Having that one, or few, that are actually compassionate about what they do and experience they have. The only way you will know is by meeting them, whether it be in person, or over the phone. Anyone one that is compassionate about their career choice, will stand out by the way they talk about what they do for a living. You will hear the sincerity in their voice and their smile. Picking the right one (ones) will also make it easy to transition into your new chapter. I know a "bio" is supposed to be about me, but I just felt I needed to give you some advice on all of this. Take care and good luck!
