I have a Medical background and I love helping people to easy physical or emotional pain. I have worked as a care giver/companion for Comfort keepers(part time) and I love every second of it. Love to work with seniors because I learn so much with/from them, listening to their stories and the history of their families and the towns they are from. It is very gratifying to know I am helping them to feel respected and loved. Some of my clients have become part of my life and family and I am still in contact with them even when they are not under my care anymore. I have learn new skills from my clients such to be grateful for being healthy, caring and patient to others' pain and flaws, I have learned to garden and knit and even to appreciate antiques, classic music and simple things. Seniors are treasures that need love and cares, they are present of how our future would be. ... more

I kept electronic records to maintain complete files relating to receipts, shipping, and payments pr ocess to facilitate record keeping requirements of our company and the client's.
