About Desiree

When I was in High School, I used to volunteer in a facility around the town,because I love it when I see people is happy. So I decided to pursue my dream, which is to become a Nurse, but before reaching that dream of mines, I have to go every single step of my ladder to success, so I started my first step which is getting my license as a Nurse Assistant, which I got it last Dec. 2013 and started my career as a nursing assistant. Now, Iam continuing my journey which is getting that degree of nursing. My personal achievement that iam proud of is that, despite of the hardship in life I still manage to continue and pursue to what my heart truly wants and what I want to do in the near future, and that is to help people who are sick and who are weak.

    Also educated in early childhood development, I felt very comfortable and drawn to seniors and started working as caregiver in 1995. From there I worked as CNA in nursing home in Germany. When our facility opened a memory care I was selected and given classes in dementia and Alzheimer care. I worked in memory care in Germany until 2009 when I moved to Savannah GA. My last job in the US I was a medication manager in a personal care home until we moved to Hawaii last month. In my free time I love spending time outside, love hiking, running, swimming and now snorkeling.

    I have always been a caregiver naturally. I love helping others and find it very rewarding. I have worked as a CNA in the past and enjoyed it very much. My daughter became sick and I needed to work from home for awhile and started a daycare for income. Since moving to Hawaii I would like to move forward with my ultimate goal which is to return to school to complete my training to become a Registered Nurse. My CNA license is expired but I will be renewing it this summer. I really look forward to meeting new people and continuing my caregiving career. For fun I love to write poetry and short stories and do anything outdoors. Crafting comes naturally to me and I love learning DIY projects.
