At the age of 18 I decided to challenge the C.N.A test well, I passed because the test was common sense questions on how to care for someone. At the age of 14 I helped take care of my great grandfather whom past from prostate cancer. I bath, fed and clean him. After dealing with him that's when I decided to challenge the test. I worked in 2 nursing homes for about a year and ended up leaving due to my great grandmother getting sick and had alzheimers. I helped take care of her until she passed away 3 years ago. I love taking care of people and making sure they are happy and comfortable with me. I also worked for a male in Wellington fl. Whom my grandmother worked for and whenever she took time off, I took over. I have done alot of hands on and companion work. I am presently employed, but is willing to work part time. I am 35 years old and a wife and have 1 daughter she is 17 years old and is in college. I enjoy caring for others and being able to help people. That is my passion. I am proud that I was able to be apart of taking care of my love ones and others and made sure in there last days they were comfortable. I enjoy people all together.
