About Mark

Hello! My name is Mark Leslie and I am a licensed CNA in the city of Tampa, Florida! I love what I do and have dedicated myself to a career in medicine with the goal of becoming a P.A one day. But currently I work as a nursing aide and have four years of licensed experience taking care of patients of all ranges of size and condition. I specialize in caring for males since I have encountered some reluctance in past jobs with female coworkers willing to change and clean men, but that is fine by me! My favorite first question I use when treating a new patient is: "What was your first car?". I have learned that males love answering that question and it really helps me open the door for me to get to know the resident and that first impression is so important for someone in need of care. I am an extremely caring individual and I make any assignment my priority and I hope to find a new place where I can express my love for the field I am in!

Experience & Education

CNA

Nov 2017 - Apr 2018
Palm Terrace Assisted Living
When I moved from Opis, I found a job working the 3 to 11 shift part-time at Palm Terrace. Palm Terrace had fully independent to limited assistance residents who each had their own rooms inside this gigantic two-story facility. Duties included the same from Opis but there were no total-care patients there because of the style of care; residents had to be able to be mobile on their own or on their unit (walker, cane, wheelchair). Individuals had to be able to move with relatively no assistance in bed due to the nature of the facility. My activities included grooming and giving showers but mostly due to the fact that each CNA was assigned to 55 people I had a set of keys to unlock resident's doors so I can check on them, do rounds, and clean their living space. Again, because I had to move I had to say farewell to this job but I really loved it because it allowed me so much time to talk with my residents and get to know them.

CNA

May 2016 - May 2016
Opis Senior Services, Fairway Oaks Center
At Opis Fairway Oaks I was a CNA on weekends 7pm to 7am and as needed, specializing in male customers. Opis is a no-lift facility so I have extensive knowledge on how to use heuer lifts, viking lifts, weighing residents, and using sit-to-stand lifts. Opis had primarily total-assistance individuals staying long-term ,so in addition to waking people up in the morning, performing activities of daily living , cleaning and other CNA skilled duties I also fed residents that required it. At Opis I had mostly male patients because I was able to do skills with heavier people or people who were morbidly obese where a smaller CNA may have had to get someone else to assist them. I loved working at Opis but I could not realistically commute to my former job after I moved.
