I have been a caregiver for about 14 years. My grandmother raised me and assisting her over years is what drove me into thise field. I enjoy being outdoors, cooking, reading, and traveling. I enjoy being caregiver because it allows me to help others and give relief to familes and inviduals to know there are people who want be a support system. My personal achievement is finishing college and my daughter being present to witness that. I never want her to give up on her goals no matter adversity comes her way.

What makes me a great caregiver is having empathy & compassion. I have essential desire to help others. What attracted me to being a caregiver is that caring for others has always been a nurturing nature it's naturally to me. What do I enjoy most is being able to give client the support they need to live day to day allows me to see the results of my hard work. Personal achievement I'm proud of making someone happy & putting a smile on their face let me know their day was pleased. Also I'm the caregiver of my parents who both are wheelchair bound which consist of transferring from bed to commode Have been taking care of them over 5 years & it has been a pleasure to me that I'm able to help them
