I became a caregiver because I believe I have what it takes to be a great caregiver. I have a kind patient heart and passion to care for elderly. I have been working in the medical field for seven years. I enjoy working as a caregiver because I feel great satisfaction when I help others. A personal achievement is becoming a patient care technician and a certified nursing assistant. I am working on becoming a Registered Nurse and I am very focused with my career and dependable.

    I am punctual, very compassionate about what I do for people who have lost some independence from a life event. Compassion for the family involved to help lessen the burden. I like to tell stories that help the family get to know who I am and I love to hear stories from them as well. I have made Caregiving my Career and take it seriously to become highly regarded and recommended. I enjoy helping the patient and their families keep their lifestyles they have without interruption. I like seeing results so with that being said, I had achieved my series 6 & 63 license (which was a challenge for me) and was proud to present products that would get higher interest with low risk. I also did debt settlements and was happy to negotiate the lowest rate for my clients to settle. I work hard and with compassion whether your my customer, patient, friend or family member because I believe everyone needs help sometimes and I look past any obstacles getting it done.
