About Valerie

1, When I was 15 years old, my mother had cancer and I became her main caregiver. I think that experience started it. 2. I enjoy helping people. 3. When people get older in life they are usually set in their ways, they don't like change and they don't want to be dependent. I have cared for many patients over the years and I like to believe that my most personal achievement that I pride myself on is that I won every one of them over. 4. I didn't have an easy life being that my mother died a couple months after I turned sixteen. I didn't have any family and I had to leave school and my friends. But some years later I obtained my high school diploma, received my certification for Medical Office Assistant and received a diploma for a CNA course with a 4% average grade. I am loyal to my job and to whom I care for. I am compassionate, caring, trustworthy, dependable and kind and I have several great refer- ences to confirm this.
