About Shakerria

I began assisting with caregiving at the age of 15 when my Grandmother was diagnosed with Vascular Dementia.. After assisting my Mother with her care throughout my high school years I decided at the age of 18 I would register to enroll in the CNA course. I had no intentions of stopping there , I also enrolled in curriculum courses at the local college to take my prerequisites towards the RN program. After two years of college I was already a CNA and had completed my prerequisites for the Nursing program. I applied for the program and at this time it was very competitive . I didn't get accepted, but a friend advised me to to enroll in the Medical Assisting Program. This was successful; I completed the program and became a Medical Assistant in August 2007. I plan to re-apply for the RN program in the future. I have been in the Healthcare profession for 10yrs and I love it. Caregiving I believe has came to me as a God given passion and skill. My Grandmother who just celebrated her 82nd is being cared for by me and Mother. She is now bed bound but has acquired no skin breakdown, or any other issues that can stem from being restricted to the bed. I have had an impact on my patients throughout the years , almost as much as they have had on me, and I plan to continue helping individuals in the future.
