I believe I would be a great caregiver your family. I am passionate about building strong relationships with people, caring for them, and helping them set personal goals and having their needs met. For the last several years I have worked as an educator with Boston’s urban youth and families. Each year I developed a classroom management system that allowed students to develop the social and academic skills they needed to succeed in the classroom and in the world. I was also a Life Skills Coach to an Autistic young male adult. I assisted him with the skills necessary to be a positive part of his community in Allston, MA. I prepared him with the skills needed to live self-sufficiently by developing his social skills in the work environment using various behavioral plans with incentives. I feel that I am qualified for this position because of the experiences I have had in the Boston public school system, as well as my attention to detail, my focus and commitment, and my ability to work in a team environment.

My career as a health care professional is a new one. After many years as an administrative assistant in various not for profits, I made the decision to follow my passion. My interest in this line of work stems from my role as primary care give to my father. Of course I loved my Dad and caring for him was part of the circle of life. I realized after his death that caring for him was an act of love but it also fulfilled in a need in me. It was a privilege to care – to give of myself in a way that would benefit another. I grew up as an only child in a loving home. Was I spoiled -- yes. Was I uncaring -- no. My parents taught empathy and compassion. Those character traits have been with me all of my life but were not necessarily carried into my profession. Now I can merge my spiritual and moral gifts with my work.
