About Val

I've been told repeatedly that I'm and calm, gentle, and responsible. I do know, that I have extreme attention to detail. The accomplishment that I'm most proud of, was earning a bachelors degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Cal Poly Pomona. It was enormously difficult. After spending 20 years in Silicon Valley, I moved to the Big Island, where I now work as a Substitute Teacher. Many aspects of sub'ing parallel those of an excellent care giver. The parents and family of these young children, entrust their safety to me. The day's activities must be documented for review by the regular teacher. And I tend to orient to becoming a friend of the students, because I want the classroom experience to be a pleasant one where the behavior and performance are motivated by mutual respect.

My mom's health has been quite a rollercoaster for her. She's currently in the hospital. Been hospitalized since January of this year. After helping her over some years with her business and caring for her, it's made love serving others even more. I've been by my mother's side for the last so many months. Still managing to work, do online schooling and be the for her makes me want to help others even more. I've attended workshops and seminars regarding health issues. With the skills and knowledge I've gained from helping nurses and caring for my mom, I can use it towards caring for others especially the elderly.

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.
