About Michael

Being a medical professional is very challenging yet rewarding. This is a career field I accidently stumbled into while joining the military in 2010. I started as an EMT working with Trauma cases for 4 years. In 2014 I decided to do a accelerated nursing program and obtained my LPN licence so I could perform more in-depth long term care. I enjoy working with patients, learning about medical needs, coming up with a plan, following through and seeing results. I don't see being a nurse as a job I have to go to but a career I get to enjoy.

I care! I've been a caregiver since 99' when I cared for my grandparents, then my parents. I'm a firm believer of that saying,\" do unto others as you want others to do unto you.\" Being a caregiver you need to have a heart, passion, patience, and understanding. I'm a family oriented person that was raised old school style and church. I'm a 50 yr old Polynesian woman with heart.

My part time caregiver job for many years has brough me great joy even after I graduated in English major in University of hawaii at manoa. Those I cared for and care love me and miss me for I truly become their freind, for I love caregiver job and love people. CLients mostly feel happy if they habitually wear a sad face due to their ailment or feel calm and confident if their personalities are prone to be irritated or impulsively self attack. Our physical condition is the sum of our choice of thought and action in every situation of the day. The science of human body I am learning from books and caregiver job provides vivivd circumstances first hand information between the two parties, how to deepen the bond no matter what physical ailment or mental darkness exists. Care giving is from my heart , I am awarded with love, experience subtle emotion development and see people get better because of me more than in any other jobs, so I am still a fun and cordiual caregiver.
