My name is Shaquanna vickers and I became a certified home health aide in the year of 2013. The reason I started in the health business is my grandfather has Parkinson's and all I wanted to do was take him of him. Properly. Being able to care for someone that can't care for themselves is nothing shorter than a blessing. I've experienced with helping others it only makes you a better person. It makes you stronger to be able to carry the burden of others.I plan on moving up in the medical field as far as CNA and then eventually being a LPN. I love the medical field it's just a great filed to work in.
