Helping others has always been a goal of mine, even as a little girl I knew I would be in the medical field in some capacity. My heart is into caring for others. I take care of my mother and understand a family's challenge in care giving matters. I have experience for in-patient and out-patient patients. I am very observant. I understand signs and symptoms of most illnesses. I am unique in that I understand and have knowledge of tradition medicine, but also holistic wellness. I truly believe if we did both and all, we would be in a better health condition as a country. I have certification as a Medica l Assistant/Patient Care Tech from 1986.
