About Alicia

From a very young age, i grew up in a nursing environment. My mother took care of my grandmother who was a former nurse and was suffering with multiple sclerosis. I always wanted to become a nurse and becoming a cna is my first step to my journey. Out of high school I became a daycare provider and worked along side my mother and eventually got into working with special needs. From there I went to school in Indiana to become a cna. After finishing that I continued to take more courses to grow and gain experience as a cna and care taker.

Experience & Education

Certified nursing assistant

Jan 2018 - Present
Symphony of Joliet
After moving I decided to go into rehabilitation and long term care to widen my horizons. This is where I learned and became more comfortable with dealing with new patients on a daily basis. I learned how to care for a wide range of patients from dialysis, memory care, surgery, amputation to total care and hospice patients. What I loved about it was the way I learned something new everyday and kept me on my toes.

Brookdale senior living
I began my journey as a cna at Brooke dale senior living on the dementia care unit. I soon became a preceptor and the head cna on the floor. Everything from adl's to activities and appointments. This is where I fell in love with my job and helping others who can't help themselves.

Family Home Care
I moved from rehab to visiting these types of patients in their own homes. These patients needed help with more than just adls but also a companion. Getting to learn each patients story made my job so much easier and helped me to see sides of people I never have.
