I became a caregiver because my desire to help others has always been a driving force in my life. One of the things I like about being a care giver is how you have a chance to connect with the patients/clients better than anybody else you spend the most time with them. One of my personal achievements that I am proud of is when I was in the social work field, and I had been able to talk a client out of considering selling his prescribed medications to another client. All I ever wanted out of life was to be able to help others and create music. A little bit about myself... I'm a psychology graduate who has a passion for drums and percussion. In my time during my years at Johnson State College I was part of the Percussion Ensemble and the Afro-Cuban Ensemble, while I also held an independent study studying the neurological and physical effects of percussion recreation activity amongst the senior population in an adult senior center. After graduating college, I went immediately into the Social Work field where I spent a combined two years as a Case Worker working with clients under the Adult Autism Spectrum and having worked to with two seperate mental health agencies. I have a lot of experience in playing multiple roles within my positions at these agencies to help young clients with severe behavioral/mood disorders. In these positions that I have held, I have been part of a team whose goal was to help mentally disabled/challenged individuals learn how to become strong, healt
