I became a caregiver because I enjoy helping people. I owned and operated my own children's daycare center in my home for 20 years. I left that to obtain my CNA and am currently working in a nursing home in Havre de Grace. I like being able to have one on one contact with an individual to make a difference in their personal care. Personal interaction and special time spent is important to me and to the individual. I take pride in forming special relationships with the individuals to whom I provide care. I enjoy talking to them about things I do and love to listen to stories of their life that they are interested in telling me. I have had the experience of sitting with a few individuals during their last few days and found it very special that I was able to provide comfort and care when family was not able to be there.
