Hello! My name is Robin and I have been care-giving in Colorado for 5 years, And I have recently moved to Jacksonville NC! I have worked in multiple companies, and done private care as well! I knew care-giving was my passion when I was 18 and I met my first client, her name was Gloria and we quickly became close friends! Along my care-giving journey I have had many clients that became close to my heart and taught me so much about life, compassion, and how to be a better caregiver! I've worked closely with clients who have dementia, and I consider that to be a strong point for me, as I have seen the disease in all stages, I know what to look out for, and in general, how to comfort somebody who is very scared and confused. A few more strong points for me would include: compassion, cleanliness, time management skills, honesty, and a true love and passion when it comes to caring for people. Whats I enjoy most about being a caregiver is the rewarding feeling and sense of accomplishment I get, knowing I have brightened somebody's day, and improved their life! I became a caregiver to provide myself with a foundation to be a nurse. I achieved my CNA and nursing certificate in psychiatric nursing specialty, with pharmacology. I went on to care for HIV /Aids patients and hospice. I have a wonderful calming and caring effect on people and have worked many outstanding cases.
I was planning to get my PhD in psychology for psychologist, but I stuck with nursing as I loved it very much.
I have worked from NY to San Diego and have been with one company for 20+ years.
I went back to school for my BA in education, as I teach special education as well. I am always updating my psychiatric background and love learning.
I have many wonderful success stories, including my patient who I was with for 4 years, as his private nurse, care manager and trainer for his caregivers. I work well independently and have great skills.
I love to write and my English/Education background has helped me get published. I still write and plan to publish more work.
I presently am a music reviewer and article writer for different publications.
I am very diversified in skills, education and interests, but I am above all a people person who is dependable, professional, well skilled and well liked.
