About Shakita

Hello Everyone, I'm 30 years old with two Children. I work as a Restorative Aid in a nursing home part time and I love what I do. I have been a Certified Nurse Assistant for the past 3 years. I have a 99 year old great grandmother who is the reason I do what I do. She reminds me that the persons I'm helping is someone's loved one and I should always treat them as I would my own loved one. I a loving down to earth person who loves to smile and see others smiling as well. I grew up around the saying if you see someone without a smile give the one of yours, and I carry that everywhere I go.
