I became a medical assistant because I love to care for people who can't or need help with caring for themselves. I raised three successful children on my own and am extremely proud of all of them-one even serves our very country. I've wanted to be in healthcare since I was a child and my mother would always tell me I always asked the doctors so many questions about what he was doing and why. Now I continue my enjoyment of placing a smile on someone's face, just by doing something that's meaningful to them. I am currently unemployed and if I could take of people one-on-one, well that would be my blessing to them. My mother passed away from lung cancer and she showed me how inner strength and positivity makes all the difference in treating a horrible disease. I want to carry on her legacy. I have worked as a sub-contractor for the VA and have been thoroughly background checked by homeland security-so thankfully there will be no skeletons in my closet. I just feel that my calling is taking caring of people, even if it to the store, a doctor's appt or justing keeping them company.
