My name is Jennifer Wenninger. I have done caregiver work on and off for the last 20 years or so. I started out as a CNA at a nursing home. I continued as a CNA for about 10 years. The last three years of my life I have worked with adults with disabilities at an ADS in Wisconsin. I have recently relocated to NC. I feel as though a caregiver is what I was meant to do in life. I have completed 2 years of college towards my dream of becoming and RN. I would love to continue being a caregiver and eventually continue my path of becoming an RN. I have a kind heart, and I am a fast learner. I have the ability to sense when something is going on with an individual even when they are unable to speak. I believe this is something that is necessary when being a caregiver. I love to make a difference in peoples lives, and make someone smile at least once a day. A smile is worth a thousand words. One of the things that sticks out in my mind the most as a somewhat personal achievement happened at my last job. I had a client that started at the ADS I was employed at. We were given a write up of some of the things that may work for her behaviors. Within a years time I was able to bond with this client and was able to make her more functional in daily living. She was able to go out into the community and not have a melt down, something she was never able to do her entire life. She learned to trust me and we became friends. We had mutual respect for one another and progressed every single day.
