About Sophia

Adaptable and motivated individual seeking various and new opportunities to include in my career path in the field of Psychology. I strive to learn, grow and apply knowledge to help others and make this life a better place. Genuinely compassionate with a natural connection to people while following policy and ethical guidelines. Aspire to further education to either go into nursing or counseling. My grandmother had dementia and I took care of her the best I could until her death and since then have enjoyed spending time with elderly. I love hearing stories and receiving wisdom passed down! I learn so so much and I love learning new things. It's my pleasure to help make someone's life a little easier and makes my day to see another happy. The generation older than mine did their share to give my generation what we have now, so I feel it's our generations duty to take care of our elders. I also put myself in the position, that someday I will need care so I give the attention I would want myself. The best.

I became a caregiver because I love people. I am an emotional being and I understand that everybody experiences life different than I.
