I took care of a beautiful shy 3 year old girl. She was delicate and we taught each other much. Taking care of children is what led me to working with Seniors. Cleaning, bathing, outings, artwork, learning how to communicate with others, laundry, cooking, meditation and yoga.

I'm a calm, organized, caring, and compassionate individual who enjoys learning things, and being patient enough to stick through them until I fully understand! I take extra initiative, even if it's the smallest thing to help, or make a day better, because the smaller things are what I know to appreciate out of life. I help out mother and father whether it's running errands to the grocery store for them, cleaning up the house, or organizing their medication, or walking the pets, and the feeling of being able to make a contribution, and make their day smoother gives me a sense of happiness. One of my personal achievemnts I am most proud of is being accepted to nursing school, which is a childhood dream and ambition of mine; to help others when they need it gives me great gratitude.
