First and foremost, I have a compassionate heart and desire to serve the most vulnerable in society. I am currently a graduate student at Loyola University Chicago with the intention of becoming a healthcare or hospice chaplain. I hold a M.S. in psychology and have over nine years of work experience in non-profit, specially in the fields of: education, mental health, and social services. My interest in caregiving has been a life long desire starting as a babysitter at age 12 and continued with my work in social services. My favorite part of caregiving occurred when I was able to advocate for a client' s personal needs. ... more
