Hello! My name is Mikayla. I became a caregiver because I find it to be the most fulfilling career and lifestyle. I enjoy helping others and feel that I will be doing this for all of my life. I plan on pursuing a career in nursing and wanted to start in home health first to gain experience. My past three or so years working in in-home health has given me so much knowledge and really made it clear that healthcare is where I want to be. My absolute favorite part of being a caregiver is the relationships you build with the clients and how important they do become. I have always pushed myself forward and co ntinued with what was in front of me. I think I find that to be my biggest personal achievement, the drive to do something good. It is a goal that I try and achieve on a daily basis. I am twenty-one years old and was born here in San Diego and have lived here all my life. Both of my parents are Rn's (registered Nurses) so I was kind of brought up with the healthcare settings and have always wanted to work within healthcare. I absolutely love what I do and am excited to continue my career. ... more
