About Amanda

Hi my name is Amanda but I go by Grace. I have been a CNA since I was 17. The reason why I decided to join the nursing field is because I love helping people. It is one of the most rewarding jobs a person could have. As a CNA I have worked in nursing homes, on the psychiatric unit in the hospital, and now I work at a transitional care facility. I take great pride in my work and making sure the people I take care of receive the best care possible. A little about me, I grew up in a small town. In High school I was involved in FCCLA, FFA, yearbook club, and also participated in track and cheerleading. I have always been an active person who loves meeting new people. After high school I attended college at a local community college where I majored in chemistry and nursing. I am about to start nursing school which once I finish I will consider it my greatest achievement.
