I would be a great addition to your care team. I have a lot of experience with caregiving, nannying, and customer service. In 2010, I assisted a woman (52) who was thought to have epilepsy, and later was diagnosed with brain cancer. I worked with her and her family on and off for about two years. Prior to and following that experience, I nannied for various families, with various ages and numbers of children, some of whom had disabilities. Currently, I am a caregiver for a male (36) quadriplegic and a female (24) with Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 2. I also have experience working for a female (24) who suffered a traumatic brain injury, and a male (60) brain cancer patient who suffered a stroke as a complication. I have been caregiving for over 5 years now. I have plans to begin nursing school in 2017 and am currently finishing up my last pre-requisites. I am looking for a position where I can utilize my skills working closely with an individual, part time or a split shift schedule, which will give the opportunity to expand my experience, skills, and knowledge in an additional caregiving position.
