I have realized that being a caregiver is my calling, I am passionate towards my job and other people. I am very caring and understanding. I'm not only looking for a job but also a relationship with someone that needs my skills, hard work, and listening ear. I care deeply for other people and maintain a professional but loving demeanor. I am patient and capable of taking care of others needs. I take my job very seriously because I feel like what I do is very important and should not be taken lightly. Most importantly, I am dependable.

    I have taken care of family and friends all my life. It just comes naturally to me! I can't imagine doing anything else. I find it very rewarding when I know I have helped someone, in some way...helping them with difficult tasks of daily living..or just a kind word or friendly game of cards. I've been a CNA for over 5 years and I have home health and long term care experience.
