I became a caregiver after taking care of my grandmother during her final stage of life. I enjoy helping those in need and feel much satisfaction when my clients are pleased with my service. I love to interact with each one and learn how they prefer things to be done. I have a degree in Psychology and I have worked with people who have disabilities for several years. I can joke with clients, as well as, empathize with them. I am an excellent listener, very patient and responsible. My clients come first. I am very reliable and seldom miss work. I attended the University of North Carolina at Wilmington with a full teaching scholarship. My original major was Special Education where I was introduced to people who have a disability. I learned about behavior modification and about most of the disabilities that exist. I changed my major to Psychology as I became more interested in that field. I was on the Dean's list each semester throughout my college experience. I was a member of a National Honor Society in Psychology and held the position of Treasurer.
