I have worked in assisted living facilities for many years as a diet tech. I talked with them about their diets and most times the subject changed to a more personal level. My patients were starved for that one on one attention. That's when I knew I wanted to be a caregiver. I like the bonding experience and the smiles on their faces when they answer the door. I am most proud of the trust and feeling that I have made a difference in the lives of my patients. Keeping them as independant as possible. I am cheerful, compassionate, outgoing and have a heart of gold. I love spending time with my boyfriend and my cat. I am a proud first time gramma to my 6month old grandson,Dylan. I also enjoy watching or going to the movies and reading poetry or a good novel.
