About Angie

I have always had a desire to serve others. I joined the US Army in 2001 to serve my country and left Honorably in 2013 to pursue a nursing career. As a Registered Nurse, I am rewarded daily by the clients I serve. I live to bring a smile to someone's face, and I will always have a smile on mine. No matter what our circumstances as individuals, it is always our duty to care for others, and we will never regret giving of ourselves. My experience as a Registered Nurse has been on Medical-Surgical and Medical ICU settings. I am certified for Basic Life Support and Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support. I am familiar with many medications and able to work around special equipment, such as ventilators, ostomies, etc. I am able to assist with activities of daily living, cleaning, wound care, medication administration, and much more. Most importantly, I am an advocate who understands that each person requires and deserves individualized, loving care.

    What makes me a great caregiver. Well it's easy to answer my love, compassion, respect for elderly I've a caregiver since 2010 because taking care of a good friend whom had several health issues later on she convinced me to get my certification in order to work with others in need of help she thought I could be great in the field needless to say love the health care field I'm taking classes to enroll into the nursing program pretty soon. Have some other certifications like certificate to administrate medications, O2 equipment, mental illness,trained to use medical equipment as well. I have had many different cases in the past. I feel pretty comfortable providing total care.

    I became a caregiver because I took care of my old mother that needed help and couldn't care for herself people came in my house and did not give my mother the cares that she needed and I felt so sorry for her so I had to leave one of my job to help her. 2. Being a caregiver I like helping older people meet their needs helping them reach their goals and seeing smiles on their faces.My personal achievement that I am proud of when I go to work and I make my resident smile and they know that they have someone every day to look up to that make them to feel they are love and care for. I am a very patient person a people person,friendly sociable and fun to be with love helping others in need mainly senior citizens very capable hardworking and love to listen consider every resident like my family enjoy being able to put a smile on a resident face I currently have clients that appreciate my ethic and style. I have worked with private clients .
