I believe my personality is well suited to being an excellent caregiver, due to my nurturing and compassionate qualities. Even as a child I enjoyed taking care of people. My teaching degree was used to work with preschool children and this was a highly rewarding and enjoyable job for me. Many people have said of me that I am a natural caregiver. I enjoy spending time with all people, I have a good sense of humor, I am dedicated, organized and have great time management skills and try to create moments of joy with my clients. It is extremely rewarding to me to get to know and care for people. I am proud of the achievements I have accomplished as a managing caregiver with Right At Home.

I remember during freshman year in college seeing an advertisement for live-in caregiver. I needed a job and was living in a dorm not far away. I applied and from 1977 until now I have enjoyed the privilege of caring for those unable to care for themselves. What I enjoy most is the look of appreciation on their face. It helps me want to continue in this field and is why I am seeking to continue in it. It is very rewarding in that I am giving someone a reason to live, smile and keep going as if they are not unable to do for themselves. So far, I have met some of the most precious individuals who love me as if I am a part of their family. That, makes it all the more rewarding. I love the work so much I have managed to take a Certified Nurses Assistant course in 2008. I have been on the registry since. I am currently seeking another assignment as soon as possible because I want to give back what was freely given to me, the chance t make a difference in someones life, to help give the chance to live a healthier, longer life in the manner in which they are accustomed. I have raised my only child and he is now an adult. I live alone therefore if gives me the time to be off help to someone in need.I enjoy reading, puzzles and walks in the park or on the beach. I also enjoy listening to history unfold, as told by the client. What a joy!
I obtained my nursing aide certification through a special job caring for children who were on life support systems, with severe limitations, and short life expectancy. One of my first encounters during the interview process was with a young girl with fetal alcohol poisoning, which left her without pupils and undeveloped vocals. I was allowed to hold her and when she wrapped her arms around my neck and let out this infectious giggle. I knew I wanted to work there. I also worked as a nanny, hospice caretaker, a Doula, and paraplegic caretaker. My certifications include: Nursing Assistant(5yrs), Personal Assistant, Monitoring Tech., EKG Tech., Phlebotomy(1 yr), Dialysis Tech(12 yrs),EMT(Ambulance)(8yrs). I'm now a full time Graphic Arts student, fulfilling a lifelong dream of having a degree. My hobbies include writing, drawing, designing, sculpting, landscaping, and interior design. I currently drive a medical equipped van to transport people with limited mobility. In 2009 my own son was on life support and is living on his own, as of 9/15/2014. He and his brother make me very proud. I am a true believer in treating people the way I want to be treated. Not proud of having so many jobs, I will explain.
I became a caregiver because I like to help people. Recieved my Illinois license as a nurses aide in 1997 and my Indiana License in 2007. Although I'm trying to process out of the hospital setting, I currently work at Kindred Hospital in Hammond, caring for patients with various serious health issues. As of November 2017, I became a Licensed Childcare provider. Also as of April 2018, I passed qualifications to Substitute Teach for the School City of Hammond.
