About Saunja

Hi my name is Saunja I'm 42 years old. I been a professional caregiver for 20 years now. I started at the age of 14 taking care of a elderly lady. I graduated high school and started taking classes for teachers aid. I felt taking care of children and elderly ppl was truly my calling. I stop school to become a C.N.A. I did this for 4 years, then open up a home daycare. I did daycare for 4 years then went to school for massage thearphy. I graduated and started doing private massages in ppl home. I felt like I was missing what I love to do, take care of the elderly. I took full custody of my niece who has a disability. I went back to doing C.N.A. I been on one of my job 5 years and thee other 10. I am a mother of 3 and have two loving grandchildren. My life is to give and help those who can't help them self.

    So far my experience has been in retail, but I believe being a caregiver would be a better fit for me because rather than focusing on selling a product, I love to focus on the individual's needs. I have a strong desire to help others and it would be a fulfilling position to me.

    I have never been, but I think I would love being a caregiver, so I'm willing to do anything to learn everything about the job. I'm a hard hard worker, and a lover of all people. I can be anywhere at anytime for as long as I'm needed.
