About Denise

I became a caregiver because i have a passion for putting others first. Seeing someone with an intellectual disability able to lead a happy, safe and fulfilling life is enough to make it all worthwhile. In essence, it’s about making small changes to your everyday life to make major beneficial changes to someone with an intellectual disability. Seeing them respond to their new environment – and the care and love that shapes it - provokes a feeling that must be experienced to be believed. And there’s simply no reward quite like watching the smile emerge and hearing their laughter  I love what I do in helping each client I've ever worked with. Taking care of sick people that needs my help gives me joy in my heart and it let me know they need people to work with them that care. At this point, considering all my past endeavors, I would have to say I am most proud of "this point". The first day of the rest of my life. Im 23 years old. I have one sibling, a brother. I achieved my c.n.a certificate at belkin academy in country club hills, Illinois. I was born and raised on the south side of chicago and im a very high spirited person.
