First and foremost I'd say I'm very empathetic. I grew up as the only girl in the household so I naturally fell into the role of caring, loving and providing support. I have excellent interpersonal skills and have the ability to show others a genuine loving kind spirit that will put your loved one at ease. I will earn their trust and confidence and we will both gain a friend. I have about 10 yrs as a caregiver. I was a student nurse for 1-1/2 yrs and although due to life's circumstances fell just short of graduating my proudest accomplishment is raising 3 kids as a single mom coming up thru poverty to h old my certification as a sterile processing tech making great money and happy that my kids turned out so great now 24, 29 and 31. ... more
