1. As I was raised by my grandmother when I was younger, naturally, I get along amiably with older adults in my present profession. In serving them, I know that my grandmother would be proud of me. Most of all, I enjoy the friendship of each resident, as well as they enjoy mine. It has always been a fulfilling experience to work as a caregiver.
2. My favorite part is building trusting relationships among residents, co-workers, supervisors, visitors, etc.
3. No matter what the challenge or experience, I have my passion for health-care to offer knowing that I'm helping to empower a community.
4. I have had four years of experience as a Certified Nursing Assistant. I work exceptionally well in the area of geriatrics, having cared for residents in independent living, assisted living, and hospice. To further expand my experience in healthcare, I am beginning my enrollment at St. Catherine University this fall 2014 pursuing the Dual Degree Nursing Program.
