About Denise

I became a caregiver to provide myself with a foundation to be a nurse. I achieved my CNA and nursing certificate in psychiatric nursing specialty, with pharmacology. I went on to care for HIV /Aids patients and hospice. I have a wonderful calming and caring effect on people and have worked many outstanding cases. I was planning to get my PhD in psychology for psychologist, but I stuck with nursing as I loved it very much. I have worked from NY to San Diego and have been with one company for 20+ years. I went back to school for my BA in education, as I teach special education as well. I am always updating my psychiatric background and love learning. I have many wonderful success stories, including my patient who I was with for 4 years, as his private nurse, care manager and trainer for his caregivers. I work well independently and have great skills. I love to write and my English/Education background has helped me get published. I still write and plan to publish more work. I presently am a music reviewer and article writer for different publications. I am very diversified in skills, education and interests, but I am above all a people person who is dependable, professional, well skilled and well liked.

LTo tell you a little bit about myself, I am 30 yrs old, graduated in the Philippines with Bachelor in Science in Nursing also an RN there then migrated here in US last Oct. 2009 as a permanent resident.I am currently working for a diabetic client (I do give her insulin shots) in Beverly Hills and would love to find a job closer to where I live (Camarillo) as I am now a new mom to an almost 6 month old precious baby girl. Before this job, I did hospice care assignment in Oxnard, my client died from liver cirrhosis. I also have worked for a client Westlake Village who died in Brain Cancer. I have also worked for 2 clients in Camarillo. In Virginia, I have worked in 2 different assisted living facilities in memory care units which specializes in Alzheimer's/dementia clients. I have also worked in private home care for clients with Alzhiemer's, bed bound, with mobility problems, stroke,diabetes etc. Aside from patient care, I been administering meds to clients. I am a board certified medication aide there, since in Virginia, it is required to be certified before staff could administer meds. Before, I left Virginia, I worked for the City of Virginia Beach on their intermediate care facility for clients with intellectual disabilities, I did patient care and administration of meds, documentation as well as going on their outings. I have experienced giving meds orally, through G-tubes, as well as G-tube feeding and even insulin administration. Also, experienced in getting vital signs and blood sugar level. I would love to take care of your loved ones if given the chance. My client's well being is my utmost concern and taking care of my clients is my passion. My number is 7 5 7 - 7 5 3 - 2 8 4 1. Have a day and hope to hear from you soon. Respectfully, Mavel Jagow
