About Brenda

My passion to caregiving blossomed during my sister's high risk pregnancy. In order to alleviate the stress she was undergoing, I assisted with cooking, cleaning, and providing company with my good sense of humor, day and night. This lifetime experience enabled me to explore the spectrum of care. My ability to provide comfort to patients at their most vulnerable stage, regardless of their condition, gives me a sense of purpose to be present at every stage of a patient's journey. Working in fast pace environments, especially during the COVID pandemic, taught me how to be agile and resilient to quickly respond to situations and continue providing the care patients need. Meeting the high demands of patients suffering from prominent health issues such as Parkinson's Disease, Alzheimers, Dementia, and COVID, to name a few, has been a hallmark of my role as a nurse. When resources become limited, or when there is minimal information known about a new patient, I strive to address the uncertainties with patience listening to the resident, accommodating to their needs, communicating with my team and taking initiative. Coming from a family oriented background, I provide care to others as if it were my own family. The scope of my capabilities extend beyond addressing the task at hand such as baths, daily hygiene, changing, transferring, and communicating. My attentiveness and sense of humor allows me to develop a trust relationship that eases their tension. My dedication as a Certified Nurse Assistant allows me to feel immense gratification when I connect with patients and address their concerns. I am well rounded, meaning I have the means to listen and communicate effectively with residents and nurses with great attitude. It's accomplishing to have recognition from residents and colleagues to have me around for my dedication to help and uplift an environment that needs positivity. Understanding the challenges of patient care is one step out of many to be a successful nurse.
