I am a very patient and compassionate person. I also speak Spanish fluently. I find personal fulfillment from helping others. I also enjoy working with Geriatrics very much!

Patients and understanding helps me understand the individual needs of the/my patient to help them through their journey . I have worked in mental health for eight years. This has allowed me to understand the clients mental state of mind and how it declines. I have worked closely with dementia. I was able to see first hand how thi s deteriorates and robs your love ones of their independence and memory. I worked with Hospices for six months. The family made sure their love one was in the comfort of their own home and pain free as much as possible. Making sure everyone has the same opportunity to have great quality of life. ... more
