About Mikki

I love people and think we should all be treated with respect and kindness. I started caregiving due to the fact of both of my son's great-grandparents were diagnosed with dementia. I did not want them to be placed in a home or separated. Then after both of them passed away, I sadly went back to my wrecker service. Worked only two weeks and decided this is not what God wants me to do. So I went to work for Kelly's assisted living as an on-call coordinator and doing PCA work during the day. Then Mr Hartman came into my life he suffered from MS completely quadriplegic I was told I would be lucky if he lived 5 years. He became a father to me I kept him alive with the grace of God for over 20 years. He was a very large man that was bed bound but everybody was amazed that he only had one bed sore the entire time I took care of him. I love to make people smile I have a quirky sense of humor. I just hope as I age someone will care for me as I have cared for the people in my life. With compassion, love and understanding.

1)I became a caregiver because I love to help others and make a different in someone else's life .2)What I like about being a caregiver is,to be able to help someone and it make me happy . Because I am a loving & caring & respectful ,trustworthy person .When I'm helping someone I feel very happy , especially for those that can't help themselves. 3) A personal achievement that I am proud of ,is all my four children are done with college and one of them is married and started with new job and my last one/son is graduated done with college & already starting working. To me that's a big accomplishment and very proud of all of them. I'm going to be a grandma next year That's make me really happy &they are really close to God that 's making me even more happier. Only God can do such things ...To me it's a dream come true & Glory to GOD. 4)About myself , I've been married for 31 years and I have four children and I am God fearing .And I've been Cna for more than 17 years and I love what I do . The reason that I love it is because I was in car accident 20 years ago I could not do nothing for myself and my family took care of me and I said to myself I have to help others who needed help & won't be able to take care of themselves. And because I have compassion for what I tell anyone that who want me to work with a loved one if they don't have enough money to pay I'm willing to negotiate. Because our Father in heaven wants us to care for one another.
