Hello! I'm currently looking for a part-time position caring for older adults. I have seventeen years of experience in the medical field working in Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, and OB/GYN doctor's offices. Some of my skills include CPR, basic first aid, patient care, and measurements of blood pressures and vital signs. I am caring, compassionate, and have a friendly bedside manner.
I enjoy working with people to improve their mental and physical health; to help them achieve their goals for a healthy lifestyle and the care they need. I find people to be very interesting, but more so elderly people who have already lived and done so much in their lives.
I take pride in the accomplishments I have achieved over the past seventeen years as a Medical Assistant while working in Family Medicine, Internal Medicine and OB/GYN. During my most recent job, I ran a team with thirteen providers, providing them with administrative and medical assistance. I also trained my co-workers who were interested in doing GYN, skin lesion and cyst removal procedures.
I have been in the care field for the past ten years. I have worked with many populations including folks with developmental disabilities, dementia, brain trauma, mood disorders and schizophrenia. I have worked with all ages except for children (professionally).
Art is my main passion and I have made art since my childhood, but as far as job positions, I have always found care jobs. Care is natural for me, I strive to honor the people I care for and am able to build a rapport quite quickly.
My biggest joy about caring for others is that I learn an immense amount about different perspectives, experiences in life and get to connect with people that are often cast aside in our youth and perfection obsessed culture.
An achievement; when I can truly apply the depth of care and respect that I give to people I help, to myself, that feels like an achievement for where I am right now in life. Helping people become or remain as independent as possible no matter how small a task, is also quite a good feeling.
