Before I became a caregiver I was preschool, pre-kindergarten teacher and an assistant director of a Child Care facility for 8yrs. I had always longed to work with helping others and assisting the elderly so I decided to further my education and become a Certified home health aide. I've since been in the field for almost 4yrs, and love it. It gives me great satisfaction to make others happy in whatever capacity that may be. My personal achievement and what has made me proud of myself would have to be in knowing the excellence of care I've given and the great satisfaction of making people happy. As an employee and individual I consider myself to be dependable, honest, patient, caring, very compassionate,empathetic, energetic, and always excited to learn new things.
