My name is Octavio Villa. I am 24 years old and am currently obtaining my Masters Degree in Forensic Science at Emporia State University. I have worked at 3 different locations (Johnson County Developmental Support, Ashley Home Care Services, and Helpers, Inc) that have allowed me to experience and develop a variety of skills that have made me an ideal candidate for any individual seeking a caregiver. I have 1.5 years of experience. The reason I decided to work in this occupation is due to my youngest brother who has disabilities.

It goes without saying but being a caregiver is a very rewarding and satisfying position. ... more
