About Virginia

What makes me a great caregiver is that I genuinely like to help people who cannot help themselves. As a kids, as a teenager and now as an adult I always found myself in situation where I stood up for those who were to scared or not able to care for and defend themselves. I think another great quality that I have is that I pay attention to every individual in my profession life as well as personal. Its easy for me to learn and acknowledge the likes and dislikes of people which ultimately only helps make it easier to know what someone may want or need. I decided to be a caregiver to gain a more personal experience in the field before going into nursing, which I am currently pursuing. In the meantime I am happy to spend my time helping those who can't help themselves as much as they would like.
