About Amanda

I've been teaching Preschool for 9 years and although I enjoyed it, I felt that it was a time for change. I have always loved working as a CNA in the nursing home. Unfortunately your not able to build the type of relationships you want to build with the residents and working in home care gives me the chance to build that stronger relationship with the patients and their families. I have always found myself in the role of being the care taker wether with patients, children or my own family, it is a responsibility that I take pride in doing. I honestly don't believe I'm mean to do anything else in life other than caring for people.
