Caregiving has been a large part of my life from a young age. I was lucky enough to have helped care and tend to my great-grandparents in their 90's for many years while I grew up. As a student at the University of Kentucky I first majored in pre-med studies until junior year when I established that I would pursue health administration. I began my first position as a caregiver (home health aide) as a freshman in college with an individual who is paraplegic. The job entailed taking care of another human-being completely dependent on my skills as an able-bodied person. Not only have I acquired experience caregiving for this individual and others alike for four years and counting, I have also babysat and been a nanny many times during and in between. The other position I hold dear to me is not only working with people but working with animals as well. I have had extensive experience with horses, dogs, and cats from the various farms and vet clinics I have interned for. As a multitasker and a fun loving and caring individual I feel I am an ideal candidate for your position. ... more
