About Linda

As long as I can remember, I have tried to help anyone in need. I think it's a true part of who I am. I have a compassionate heart and I care what others are feeling, needing and saying. I am passionate about people and their needs. I began as a babysitter when I was 14 years old. I am a mother of 6 children, three of which had special needs. In my early 30 s I began to volunteer for a widows group, where I learnt so much about the loneliness and the need for help in their homes and medical needs. I have always gravitated towards children, the hurting and the elderly, as experience has taught me to sympathize as well as empathize with each individual as a whole and I don't mind saying I often fall in love with each person I care for. People tell me that caring for others is just a job. To me, it's a life style. A true need, a necessity in a world that seems so cold. Caring for those that can not always help themselves, gives me a feeling of accomplishment and drives me to want to do more.

    I became a care giver because I like to help people, my mother works for Hospice and she has done this type of work since I can remember. I love this type of work !! What I like about being a care giver is getting to know different people I love listening to their stories they have to tell, also I like the company. My personal achievement is going back to school for my bachelors degree in Health & Wellness and Office Administrator, I will graduate in 2015. I am a Mom of 4 children 2 are in the military and the other 2 live in Ohio. I am currently in school and I just moved to this area from High Point in April of this year. I have been certified as an EMT in Wisconsin for 3 yrs. I am certified in CPR and basic first aid. I am an out going person who loves being around other people and helping out whomever needs it.

    Since high school I've worked in the medical field. I've always had interest in being a CNA because my mother was a CNA also. The love, empathy, care and passion that my mother put into her work made me feel like that was something I'd like to do. I received my CNA license in 2010, knowing that from that point forward that my job would be to make a difference in another person life. I love working with people and most of all helping someone with there personal needs. Every person I care for I look at then as of they were me, knowing that one day I'll need someone to help me. Being a CNA is definitely a passion and something I enjoy doing, help those who depends on me.
