Hello Carelinx Community! My name is Samantha and I am currently a caregiver. I currently have a full- time job, but do this the side, as my passion is in the medical field. I attended college with a focus in Biology (pre-med) and a minor in Philosophy. I have had a lot of experience including shadowing, internships, a career in a hospital, and now as a caregiver. Some personality traits and/or expertise that help me be a great caregiver is my knowledge of this field, outgoingness, and confidence in my work. I go above and beyond to make each and every patient feel comfortable and important. What attracted me to being a caregiver is my love for this field and everything it has to offer. Everyday is rewarding and I enjoy meeting different types of people and listening to their stories.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
