I am a Certified Nursing Assistant with three years which include home health, sub-Acute, and long-term care. I am a second year Occupational Therapy student and I have a year experience working as a Rehab Tech. I identify as a Christian and those close to me say I am a very compassionate, problem-solving oriented, reliable and enthusiastic person. I am proactive in listening and suggesting solutions to the person I am caring for. I live as a Christian, that means I live by the teachings of compassion, humility, and honesty. I am personally invested helping others and I bring happiness to make sure a person is well taken care of regardless being outside of paying hours. My faith and personality are the reason I decided to become a care giver. I have a very close relationship with my grandparents and I was a live in care giver for two year. I am familiar with generational gap bonding. I enjoy getting to know a person and I make a great companion so I have been told. I have accumulated a lot of knowledge with my time with my grandparents. I am very familiar with a very variety of different card games and good books.
