About Dana

I became a certified nursing assistant 17 years ago and have loved every minute of it. To me, there is no greater reward then knowing you have made a difference in someone's life. I have worked in many aspects of nursing, but the one I love the best is in-home care because it allows the loved one to stay in their home as long as possible. My most personal achievement is my children who are now 25 and 22 years-old. My second most personal achievement is knowing that I am in the career I was meant to do. I am hard working, very organized, dependable and loyal to my clients.

    I knew I wanted to take care of people when my grandpa was sick when I was in 6th and 7th grade. Visiting him in the nursing home and hospital pushing him around and making him smile was the best feeling ever. I decided to go to Lawrence County Vo-tech for my 11th and 12th grade year to become a CNA and started working my senior year in November 2008. In 2012 I left that job to go to the facility my grandma resided in until she was well enough to go home which was about 2.5 years, and continued to work until I moved in 2016 I currently am working for St. Barnabas now as a hospice aide part time. I recieved an award for employee of the month in August from them. Overall, I enjoy helping care for people, and make them feel good about themselves. A smile of appreciation in return is so rewarding.

    I'm passionate in providing care for others. I have been a caregiver for the past 6 years, it is all I know! I work part time as a CNA at a retirement community. Caregiving gives me a sense of integrity and purpose that I wish to continue to pursue throughout my entire career.
