About Gem

I decided I wanted to help others when I went with my mother to work a couple of times. Seeing her work with the elderly and disabled really warmed my heart and I knew that it was something I wanted to do in the future.. I am now a CNA and very happy in this field. I would like to take it further in the healthcare system.
