I entered my journey into health care at an early age (25 yrs. as a caregiver and 6 yrs. as a CNA). As a teenager in 1986, I started caring for family members and others by helping my mother who was a nurse and physical therapist. When family members became extremely ill, they were moved into our home and cared for by my mom and myself. I learned that caring for others was a desire of mine and it came easily to me, just like breathing it’s in my soul. Being passionate about caring for others directed me to advance my knowledge and be more than a Caregiver or Certified Nurse Assistant. I have dedicated my life to continuing my education and building my knowledge in healthcare so that I can continue to provide healing to those in need. I believe that caring for the well-being of others should be based on the whole person, which is their mind, body and spirit. I think Western Medicine (conventional medicine) with Holistic Health can help provide the care that is needed for loved ones. This is possible by combining the directions and medication given by a physician along with including spiritual and mental health, nutritional therapy, herbal medicine, aromatherapy, meditation, therapeutic touch, exercise, energy work, acupuncture, massage therapy, chiropractic procedures and caring and preparing loved ones for their afterlife journey. With this combination of care treatments, I believe that myself and other care providers are able to give 100 percent care for the whole person. ... more
