I have never been formally employed as a caregiver but, I have experienced first hand the hardships that disabled patients face. My mother was a cancer patient and I was her sole caregiver the last year of hear life before she passed. After a couple of bad experiences with home nurses, I decided to become her primary caregiver. Knowing she was comfortable and well taken care of was very comforting and rewarding for me. Working as a mental health technician has helped to also get a better understanding of disabled patients. I enjoy providing the help patients need. I strive to make all of my pati ents smile. I was born here in Savannah, Georgia. I am a mother of four beautiful children ages 19, 15, 12, and 6. In my spare time I enjoy reading and listening to music. My future goals are to secure my degree in Psychology and become a successful Clinical Therapist for adolescents and adults. ... more
