I am a healthy, active, strong 47 year old woman. I have worked in an assisged living facility, a hospital, and a rehab facility. I have also done a lot of private duty. My longest assignment was caring for a quadriplegic man. I have raised three daughters, so I understand children as well.
I have been in the care field for the past ten years. I have worked with many populations including folks with developmental disabilities, dementia, brain trauma, mood disorders and schizophrenia. I have worked with all ages except for children (professionally). Art is my main passion and I have made art since my childhood, but as far as job positions, I have always found care jobs. Care is natural for me, I strive to honor the people I care for and am able to build a rapport quite quickly. My biggest joy about caring for others is that I learn an immense amount about different perspectives, experiences in life and get to connect with people that are often cast aside in our youth and perfection obsessed culture. An achievement; when I can truly apply the depth of care and respect that I give to people I help, to myself, that feels like an achievement for where I am right now in life. Helping people become or remain as independent as possible no matter how small a task, is also quite a good feeling.
I became a cna my junior year of high school knowing it would be a good start to my healthcare career. I have worked in facilities and the hospital setting. I also spent 6 years doing in home care & hospice , which I prefer because u get the time to do better care & get to focus all your energy on One person at a time versuses 5 or 10.You can connect with a person better in their own environment & I enjoy being able to help people stay in there homes when without help it may not be possible. I'm currently enrolled in a bachelor's of nursing program a nd hope to receive my degree in 4 years. My nursing degree has been my lifelong goal & I can't wait to be able to help people in a whole new way.

I have always had a compassionate and caring personality, even in my group of close friends, I was known as the "Mom" figure. I always strive to do my best to make sure others are happy and healthy and care for others. I find great joy and fulfillment in seeing others happy and assisting in any way I can. My ultimate goals are to get back into Childcare as I finish my BA in Early Childhood Education and hopefully open up my own preschool some day. I have are experience with both very young children and infants as well as adult care and senior care.
