About Samantha

I decided to become a caregiver after my father had a stroke! I saw what the CNAs did for my dad and I wanted to do the same thing and make a change in someone's life like they were doing for my father. I love everything about being a caregiver! I have so much passion for everyone I care for and have a huge heart! I am proud of myself everyday I work knowing i helped someone and put a smile on their face. I'm a very outgoing, talkative,friendly,a loving person. I love what I do as a job and I'm always will to help anyone in any way ????
