About Diamond

I became a caregiver at sixteen because my grandmother had multiple sclerosis and needed care . We could not afford care so i took one the job after school helping my mother who is a nurse take care of her. I did feeding changing and turning her every two hours. I love being a caregiver because it's very rewarding to help those whom cannot help their selves . I love to cook clean and be the companion they need daily. Care-giving is part of my pathway to becoming the nurse that I want to be. I am proud of passing the medical assisting class at Boston Reed Medical school. I could not afford to pay for my license that is why I do not hold one currently . I am a very kindhearted caring person who is understanding loves to learn and prides myself upon being the very best that I can be .I take what I do very seriously , because what I do is my passion and I love and enjoy every moment of my job.
