About Jennifer

Hi my name is Jennifer and I have always enjoyed taking care of people in one fashion or another. I became a CNA in 1993 in NC and worked in many different venues ie; Ltc facilities hospitals , home health and agency. The medical field always has fascinated me so here I am almost 30 years still involved in it. I have also work as a customer service representative so I never ventured far from dealing with people. If I can impact a person's life by helping in a small way then I have served my purpose for that given day. One of my hardest experiences I have ever endured was when I took care of my Mom when she was given a terminal diagnosis of cancer. That in itself showed me that my job as a caregiver is always needed desperately.

Experience & Education

Shahbazim

Feb 2015 - Apr 2019
Veterans Administration
I was a shahbazim , part of a complex team that assisted in taking care of 10 veterans who lived in a home. My job consisted of meal preparation , cooking, activities of daily living: including bathing , dressing and feeding if needed. I also cleaned individual rooms as needed , did laundry . I was responsible to observe and report any problems with regards to any physical , mental or emotional changes. I was first aid trained and cpr certified. I was trained in defense tactics due to the nature of some of the seriousness of illnesses these veterans had. Over all it was may responsibility to make sure we offered them the best living arrangement to be had.
