I love making people feel the best they can and helping them to feel independent. I became a caregiver when my grandfather got diagnosed with dementia 4 years ago. When his disease began to worsen i worked 2 jobs 7 days a week while caring for my 8 year old daughter just to pay my way through my cna course. I have a great passion for nursing and I have had quite a few long term patients and short term patients as well. I care for them with the same compassion i would give my own family members. I would like to move forward with my nursing career as well.
