I tend to be a very nurturing person who enjoys helping others. I especially love to serve the elderly as I believe that although they may be aged, their value as a person remains. It is important to me to do what I can to make a positive difference in my clients life by bring some meaning, purpose and respect to them and their lives. I became a caregiver because I love to serve others and for me it is the most rewarding career opportunity I could find. I feel that by doing my very best everyday for my client I am achieving personal and career satisfaction. I have worked as a volunteer crisis pregn ancy counselor and I very much like encouraging others. I am always seeking to learn more and improve my skills. I have taken phlebotomy and medical assistant classes and I have been a CNA, however, my certification has expired. It is my desire to become re-certified. ... more
