I love working with people, I previously worked as an Administrative Assistant and Legal Secretary and wanted to make a change. I volunteer with Sister-4-Sisters, a non-profit organization that helps women start over in their lives due to physical or mental abuse due to drugs, alcohol or spousal abuse. I wish to find a job or position where I can assist in the home of an elderly person needing companionship to get back and forth to doctor, assist around their home with clean up, prepare meals, etc. and basically offer any assistance I can to make their every day lives more enjoyable. My greatest achievement was raising two daughters who went onto college and now have thriving professional careers. I am basically a very active and outgoing person that loves to interact with people and I believe I could be a great asset to an elderly person that needs some assistance. I am not a certified nurse, but I do have a CPR and First Aid certification good until 2016 that was completed at Prince Georges Community College in 2013.
