I started working as a caregiver in 2010 when I was 18yrs old. My grandfather had gotten really sick and needed someone to care for him 24hr a day, my mother couldn't do the job due to her buisy work schedule, so I then decided to register with the department of health services (IHSS). Later on I applied for other homecare positions to enhance my skills in caregiving in which I had the opportunity to work as a program instructor learning how to deal with students and had taken training classes to reinforce positive behaviors. I enjoy being a care provider because I'm naturally a care taker. I enjoy helping others less fortunate feel great about themselves . My achievements is knowing I leave my clients happy and the satisfaction on their faces. I'm outgoing, loving,caring and believe that my purpose in life is to help others and remain humble.
