About sylvia

I've had a passion for personal care since I was 15 years old. I lived in Bolivia and volunteered at a convent where the nuns picked up abandoned and homeless elderly and took them to a beautiful nursing home to care for them. There a nurse who knew I loved medicine, took me under her wings and trained me as a CNA. I became a PA in the 1990, but I got a job as a care giver during the time I was home schooling my kids to works night on the side besides my PA work. I love the elderly. I also was blessed to be able to care for my mother who had terminal cancer and finally passed after 3 years. Last year I had the opportunity to work in my field in a Nursing Home and loved every minute of it. I have an Aromatherapy certificate and I am certified to do Aromatherapy light massage.
