Being a caregiver for seventeen years has helped me in so many ways, I have worked in Adult Care Facilities, Private Duty, etc. I love what I do in helping each client I've ever worked with. Taking care of sick people that needs my help gives me joy in my heart and it let me know they need people to work with them that care. I feel I have a very compassionate heart. It gives me pride to help, it is just a job to me.
