About Melissa

I am one of 8 children and an aunt of 13 nieces/nephews so far. I enjoy taking care of people and helping them. I love cooking and baking. Feeling like im apart of a family. I have a brother who suffered a traumatic Brain injury and has medium movement in his body. I believe this is where my need and want to care for people began. Besides helping with all my siblings and nieces/nephews.

I grew up watching my parents taking care of my grand parents , I guess it comes naturally to me doing the same . Taking care of other gives you that inner satisfaction which is hard to find in other work settings. I'm proud to be a Nurse . I'm registered nurse from a foreign country working as certified nursing assistant with extensive experience working with seniors with different healthcare needs and trained to work with a lot of diverse cultures and settings.

I have always been an empathetic person. I receive a great amount of gratification by helping people. I feel I can make a difference in an individuals life with a helping hand or just take the time to listen to the wants and needs of others. I consider myself a handy woman that includes making dinners to fixing the hinge on the door! A personal achievement or accomplishment would be to have raised to beautiful boys and put them through college as a single parent. My husband passed away at a very young age and I believe that inner strength and positive attitude is your most powerful asset in life.
