I have over 8 years experience in the health field with most of my experience being in a clinical setting and also in home health. I received my CNA certificate in 2004 and moved forward in the medical field successfully completing a medical assisting course in 2006. After working as a medical assistant for several years I went and enrolled to become a Phlebotomy Technician in 2013 successfully completing that course as well. I have been working in home health since 2013 with home health agencies as well as with the State of Illinois as a (PA)Personal Assistant caring for patients. However, my job with the State of Illinois is only when they have a case for me which makes me pretty flexible. I am also CPR and AED certified. Most Importantly and above all else I Love what I do. Caring for people is my passion. I give the care that I would want given to me or my loved one. ... more
