I became a caregiver because its gratifying. I like being a caregiver due to the fact that I am able to meet new and interesting individuals. These individuals are no longer able to help themselves the way they use to and I am able to step in and provide assistance where needed. The personal achievement I am proud of is actually zip-lining I am currently in school working on my bachelors in social work and counseling. Before that, I worked in the mortgage industry as a processor/closer. I pride myself in connecting with the individuals I come in contact with by being a great communicator.
