About Octavia

Hello my name is Tavia and I have been a Caregiver since 1998. I became a CNA because back in High School I went to various nursing homes and hospitals to volunteer to help the elderly and I enjoyed it. I love making a difference and treating people how I want to be treated. What I like most is building relationships and giving my client a great experience. A personal achievement I am proud is being a successful CNA and becoming a advocate for seniors. I am a great CNA with lots of energy and great communication with tons of CNA background. Some qualities I have are I am customer service focused,I know how to talk to others, and love to make others smile. I am very reliable,respectful,calm,patience,and empathy.I have a passion for this field and many more qualities that you and your loved one will love about me. I currently work at Morris View Nursing Home.
