My name is Alexis Santana and ever since I was a little girl I knew that I wanted to help people. In high school, I started out volunteering at a senior living home and that's what really started my love and passion for the elderly. Ever since then I have loved the elderly age group and knew that was the age group I wanted to always work with. I then ventured out and worked with a young boy with disabilities to get more experience and to try something new and I loved that as well. Recently, I worked at a day program for adults with disabilities which led me to my current job of becoming an assistant manager of a group home with adults with disabilities and I love it here. The experiences and the different jobs I've had have showed me that whether it's kids, adults, or the elderly I just love and enjoy helping and supporting people and I know it's what I was born to do. With my outgoing and friendly personality, I love what I do and have fun doing it and what is most rewarding to me is making sure that people feel happy and healthy at the end of the day.
