When I was at my last year in High School I already knew that I wanted to pursue a career in Health Care or medical field that's why I decided to take up Bachelor of Science in Nursing and graduated with a degree. It is also the time when I was taking care of my father who suffered a 4th stroke that lead him to be paralyzed for several years. When I did get a chance to migrate to US that's when I decided to worked as Health Care Professional and took up some classes to be certified. As to my first job I worked as a caregiver in one of the Developmental Disability Boarding Care Level 4- I in Montclair, for 7 years. Then I did a private caregiving to several one on one clients as of today for about 2 1/2 years already , performing duties such as providing personal care, driving, marketing, meal preparations and et.al. I'm very familiar with Home Health and Hospice Care as well. I can say that this is really my passion and being an advocate to someone is priceless. Receiving personal overwhelming messages from friends, relatives and family members of my resident is one that makes me feel good and encouraged me to study to be able to perform more effective with my care.
