I was raised in a family of all nurses. I had a strong interest in helping others so I took the CNA course. I have been a CNA and have been actively working as a CNA since 2009.

I love it sit and talk with people. I love what I do because it gives back to the community especially the elderly that need the extra help and have worked hard their whole lives.

I am a very compassionate person with a drive to make everyone smile and feel cared for! I first started as a caregiver back in 2009 and fell in love with being able to help people. I then developed my career into working with adults and children with developmental disabilities and behavioral disorders. I am certified as both a DSP and BHP. I have gotten my certifications in CPR/First Aid and also am certified as a CRMA. I constantly am wanting to learn more and better myself to help others. Some traits I feel make me a great caregiver are that I'm kind, trustworthy, reliable, patient, caring, and pretty positive! I like to see the best in any situation and learn from troubled ones.
I have been taking care of people all my life! I started out at 16 years old as a nurses aide and worked my way up to an RN while raising my family. I have experience with children, disabled children and adults, geriatrics and hospice. My belief is the patient/clients needs come first. I am open and honest . I stay calm during a crisis and maintain my patient/clients dignity at all times.
When given the option to help or not I will always jump up to be the first to lend a hand. I have always had a love for helping others and enjoy the connections that can be made through a little tlc. My favorite thing about being a caregiver is knowing that I changed a persons day for the better. I am a very happy fun loving individual.
I first started caregiving when I was 17. My first job was for glorias helping hands. At first i wasnt sure about how i felt about the type of work. I didnt have much experience as to what i was doing. I took some classes and got my rcs1 and crma first. Rcs1 is a residential care specialist and a CRMA is a certified residential medical assistant. As i learned more and worked more I realized that is was my passion to help others who may need some assistance in things they can no longer do. Honestly u really do have to have a passion for this type of work because u never know what could happen or what situation u may end up in. And some of the disabilities, and some health issues can be challenging. Ive been very lucky to continue and have worked and learned various disabilities, as well as illnesses. Today i have my rcs1, pss,cna, and also insulin certified, cpr certified, and first aid certified. I love knowing that I'm making a difference and im helping and am there for someone who needs some support and help in their life.
Being a mom makes me a GREAT caregiver! Then being a mom of an amazing young man who was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes at age 6, has given me the opportunity to better understand the body, nutrition, medication, administration of and the need for compassion and guidance. I love the opportunity to make someone else's day even better.
I have worked in law-enforcement on patrol for 15 years. I gave it up six years ago and went part time to stay home with my children. Most agencies I worked for had a volunteer first(medical) responders so I was most likely the first one there and I felt I was helpful. My biggest accomplishment has been staying home with my two children. I also recently lost my father, Taking care of him and his illness for two years I would also consider an accomplishment. It would give me great satisfaction to be a caregiver and I believe I am a loving and caring person to be able to help a loved one take care of their, loved one. My children are now in school full-time and I have the time and ambition.
