About Kim

I became a CNA about 4 years ago, I love to provide care for others because its in my passion, I feel as if in life the more good you do the more blessings will come to you. I have aaccomplished a lot of things in life, I am currently in school, when I became a CNA that was a sense of accomplishment, also when I became a medication aide, that was another accomplishment. Most importantly I was a teen mom and me being able to complete school was a major accomplishment. Something about myself, in one word I like to describe me as a very caring person.
