About Carolyn

I became a caregiver in order to help people in need. A few of my family members needed medical help from time to time, so I was there to assist them. I like being a caregiver because it gives you a sense of being wanted and needed. There is always some type of work in this field, and I like being pleasant and loving to others. The personal achievement that I am of proud of is receiving my Associates Degree in Business Administration and Medical Billing and Coding. The few things that I want you to know about me is that I have worked as a medical transcriptionist at Lafayette Clinic in Detroit in 1984. I have also worked at Detroit Receiving Hospital Rehabilitation Center in Detroit during my externship. It was a wonderful experience as I worked with the patients to have their medical appointments logged in, and set them up with their examining rooms to see the doctor.
