About Matthew

I am an exemplary caregiver that is very dependable, friendly, and detail-oriented. I like to connect with people and educate them on preventative care as well as activities of daily living. Since I was in high school I've always worked in the healthcare field. I plan to move up in the healthcare profession and become a Nurse Practitioner. I am an Alumnus of the University of Nevada Reno with a Bachelors Degree in Biology and a minor in Communications. I have a lot of experience working with a variety of patients starting from when I volunteered at a local hospital while I was in high school. Upon graduating high school I became a certified nursing assistant in order to broaden my experience with patient care. After working as a CNA at Renown, I started working for St. Mary's Regional Medical Center as a Patient Care Tech. I feel confident in my ability to perform any tasks given to me and would love the opportunity to prove that ability to you. Aside from the skills and qualifications I described above, there are many others on my resume that I think would make me a great fit. I would greatly appreciate the privilege of talking them over with you in more detail. I hope to receive a follow up call or email. In the meantime, thank you for all the time and effort you take in reviewing me as a candidate to work for you!

I have worked with seniors since I was 9 years old volunteering at senior living care homes. I have always had a special place in my heart for elderly. As I became an adult I knew I wanted to keep working with them. I have worked with several families in Reno for the last 16 years. I am patient, kind, and will give them the dignity they deserve. I have experience helping with medication reminders and organization, bathing, meal prep, light housekeeping, running errands, and companionship.
