About Catrina

Why did you become a caregiver? My mother was a caregiver, and inspired me to become one and I've been in love with it ever since. What I like about being a Caregiver is that you can give a person a sense of independence while helping them to maintain their freedom of living while assisting them with thier needs, cares and support of living. My personal achievement is that you're never too late to go back to school recieved your High School Diploma and also that I'm a fighter and I'm willing to keep learning new things in life to help me to grow and mature in all experiences that life gives me, as I go through this journey of reaching whats best for my life that God has destined for me.
