I have worked with disabled children and the elderly in many facets of my career as a caregiver, tutor, and medical assistant. I believe my empathy and active listening skills are what allow me to be a successful and well-loved care provider. I truly enjoy feeling as though I am making a difference in someone's life, and providing them with the medical care and companionship they need to have a better quality of life. An achievement I'm particularly proud of was when a patient who was somewhat difficult left me a note to read after they passed away. It made me incredibly sad. But then I read the note: "You were my favorite." It warmed my heart and made me feel as though I was on the right path.
