About Crystal

I never realized until just a few years ago that something was missing in my everyday life that left me unfulfilled .... Even when I had my career and my boyfriend , I wasn't feeling as if I was doing anything that mattered to anyone Then just by chance I had the opportunity to take care of someone . It was like I knew right then what It was I had been missing ...caring for someone taking care of more than just myself ... .. I want to be a caregiver because...... I like helping, making a difference in someone's life by caring for them , i felt that fulfilled me . The accomplished feeling from helping and making friends and becoming a friend . I know I always could use a good new friend , having another person trust me depend on me knowing I am making their life a little easier my life feels more complete and mostly , giving those that need care someone they can count on. .. I am very competent clean organized and responsible ... I have no family in state no children No pets .. my friends are married with families and not allot time for much else, so my social life has become more of a non-social life... Attention and time I do have plenty of to dedicate. I love exercising walking and riding my bike .. love movies and TV ... I'm super handy and strong great on computers love to build and fix things I have a AA in business management and a BA in furniture design ... I was a rigging engineer for 15 years for industrial hardware ,construction, fall protection ,and all aspects of sets and grips for the movie industry...
