About Vernecia

I enjoy making people smile. It's so easy to help people, especially those who can't do something as simple as wipe their own face. For me, using my hands to help someone feel better seems like nothing at all, but it means the world to them. Since I was a little girl I knew one day I would be a nurse. I have worked as a Ceratified Nursing Assistance for over 18 years. I have worked hospice, children's hospital, emergency rooms, geriatrics, mental health, neonatal, labor and delivery, newborn nursey, rehab, and many more. I am currently pursuing my nursing degree. I do this because it makes me feel like I am giving back. Caring for others never gets old, instead it puts smiles on faces, warms the heart, and makes me feel like I serve a purpose in life. I know this is a God's calling for me. It feels right and rewarding.
