About Christiana

I have been a care giver for over 10years in the united kingdom where I was studying as undergraduate. I started out as a residential care worker with the elderly. I was trained (In-house) by an agency who later hired me. I worked with the elderly for over a year then got trained by another agency to work with children and teenagers with challenging and emotional behavior and I continued with working with teens for another 8yrs. I enjoy caring and giving support to people. I like the fact I can do something to put a smile on someone's face not just because it's a job but it has been part of me too. I have children and teenagers who look up to me as someone they can confide in. I am an easy going person and easy to talk to. I have the ability to detect problems early and deal with it immediately. In the second residential children's home where I worked for 5yrs we had 5girls and 3boys and it was easier for the girls to come to me and express how they feel whether relationship or personal issues and I was happy to be a listening ear and do what a carer would do within the policies of the organization and not go overboard. I am a mother of a 15year old learning disability boy who is strong and healthy, a wife and Caregiver. I just relocated to the US Oct.2013 but had found it hard to use my skills and experience in my field. So I went on to get trained as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA/GNA) to continue in my field where my skills and experiences can be appreciated.
