About Jodana

I am a retired LPN looking for a Non-Medical position. My personal pleasures in life include reading, learning new things and spending time with my family. especially my grandchildren. My interests include nature, fitness and nutrition. I have always been a spiritual person and believe in the healing power of positive thinking. I enjoy working with elderly people, hospice patients and children as these have been my most rewarding experiences. I work well independently and as part of a team, remaining professional and empathetic in my approach. My response in emergency or unusual situations is calm and focused. I have always welcomed constructive criticism as an opportunity to learn and better myself in my personal and professional life.
