1.I became a caregiver because I love taking care of others. This jobs lets me help those in need and make them feel special at times when they might not. 2.The hours, the ability to chose my own hours that work with my family schedule, everyday is new, and different. 3.I'm proud of myself for continuing to push myself, never giving up, and continuing to obtain more certifications,and licensing. I'm so lucky that I am able to be in this field and to be good at it, thrive at it, excel at it, and continue to grow with the medical field. 4.I'm a caring , hard- working, mother, wife, secure woman that lives taking care of others and making people happy. My goal in life is for small changes, small steps, simple things in life is what matters to me. I was born to be in the medical field and i am very good at it. I am dependable, reliable, hard- working, disciplined and confident woman and am ready to get back into the medical field.
