What makes me a great caregiver is the desire I have to see people stay in their own homes and live a great quality of life. I Chose to embark upon care providing because when I was a little girl I went with my church to sing at different convalescent hospitals and I always felt people would be happier in there own homes if it was a possibility. What I like best about caregiving is knowing im helping someone enjoy life while being able to remain in their home while receiving a great quality of care because I am one who believes in giving my all. An acheivement that is near and dear to my heart would be adopting my first child its a day I will never forget

As a compassion driven individual, I find caregiving to be extremely rewarding! I truly care for those I work with, and find joy in seeing improvements in my clients' emotional and physical wellbeing. I have learned that the most important aspect of caregiving is really listening to your clients and making sure that their emotional, as well as their physical wellbeing is taken care of. My nursing assistant, vocational nursing classes, massage therapy work, and osteopathic aid experience has taught me that working one on one with others is what I am passionate about and I could not see myself doing anything else with my life. As a Mother, my first priority is to work hard towards my future goals for myself and my family. I received my CNA license in July of 2016, and have since been working toward my goal of becoming a registered nurse. I find that caring for others not only improves the lives of those I care for, but also teaches me many valuable lessons about being a warm, loving, and understanding human being. I am proud to show my children that it is possible to follow your educational and career goal at any age, and that you should never give up on doing what you are passionate about.
