I started off returning to college for my CNA certification because my grandfather was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease. Around the same time my stepfather had a stroke so I was determined to be able to take care of them. Since completing my CNA certification course I have worked in facilities as well as doing home health care. I enjoy my job most because I am able to help others with daily living activities and I am able to bring joy to their lives. I am very easy to get along with. I like to think of myself as kind and I put my heart into my job. I have four years of medical school as well as my CNA certification. I just finished college for my medical assistant associates degree.
