About Ayanna

I'm a great caregiver because I'm a very passionate person, I love to help people and making them feel comfortable knowing that there's someone that's care for them. The most important part of being a caregiver to me is the patients comfort and always seeing a smile on my patients face and knowing that I put that smile there. I became a caregiver because it's my natural instincts to care for people I just love doing it, I call it my weakness. One of my personal achievement I'm most proud of was getting into nursing school, it's a step closer to me getting to care more and taking care of people.
