About Clarissa

Ever since i was a child i've enjoyed helping people. It really started when I was in grade school, 6th grade to be exact. I started taking care of the handicap kids and the mentally distubed children. It started once i found out My mom was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. It was pancriatic and stomach cancer. Ever since then i cant stop wanting to care for the sick, elderly, and anyone needing help. What i enjoy most about being a caregiver is i get the opportuniry to help better someones (my patient) day. Once i started my job as an INA, my personal achievment I gained was the ability to have patience and humility. To put somone elses needs and wants befor mine. I can honestly say that being humble, loyal, loving, vivacious, and a religous woman makes me a great caregiver. I am human i have made many mistakes. But today is a new day and i have gained so much knowledge and wisdom that i know i can do anything i put my mind to. I strive to be the best me. I am determined with anything I have my mind set on. I strive to make the worls a better place. I love to start with careing for those who need help. Even if it's just reading a book or watching television with them. While being an INA we lost three patients and that was one of the hardest things i went through. I just want to help care for whoever becomes my patient, I want to at least try to put a smile on their face or make one or more differences in their lives.
