About Monica

I have a been a nurse for nearly two years. I have worked with elderly and young patients and have a variety of experience from total patient care, to minimal assistance (please see resume for specialty experience). Prior to becoming a nurse, I worked as a medical assistant for twelve years. I have a passion for connecting with my patients and learning about their needs and hobbies. My job is not to just care for you as a nurse, but also be a friend and listen. I believe all patients should be treated like family. My hobbies are running, hiking, puzzles, and anything to do with crafting. I try to stay very active and to always see the beauty in nature.

Hello! I'm currently a CNA and EMT. The main reason I became a caregiver is because I want to make a difference in someone's life. I also just enjoy working with people and taking care of and assisting those who may have difficulty with certain activities. I have worked in both a facility and home setting, but I enjoy the home setting because I am able to be one on one with my patient to make deeper connections. I pay attention to detail and I'm very patient, I understand that sometimes there may be changes in plans and that things may not always go as planned, but I can adjust to any situation and make decisions that are best for my patient. A personal achievement that I am proud of is that I was able to become certified as a nursing assistant and as a home health aid, while working part time and going to school full time.
