firstname.lastname@example.org I became a caregiver because compassion and the value of human connections come natural to me. It is a great thing to make a positive difference in someone's life.
Some of the best things about being a caregiver are the people that I get to meet and bond with. Being able to earn a living in a home environment holds core values to me and enriches my life.
Some of my personal achievements are my skill at playing piano, and organizing and funding my own trip to Egypt for 2 months. I am Certified for First Aid/CPR/AED, and am currently enrolled in college to become a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). I plan to further this education after graduating in March 2015 to become a Licensed Vocational Nurse.
Personally, I was raised in the country on an animal farm. I love nature and the outdoors, respecting all living things and the ecosystem we all contribute to. I am very deeply rooted in where I come from. My values of living in voluntary simplicity help to keep me open, understanding, and curious. I believe I make a difference in this world by simply existing to touch the lives of others in a positive way. Some of my core values are friendship, creativity, self-respect, science, and music.
I look forward to providing you with great companionship and care.
