I am a responsible, dependable, compassionate , and hardworking individual. I hold a strong work ethic and always strive to do my best in any work situation. In my professional career I have always focused on direct patient care and supporting the integrity, dignity, and privacy of my patients. My attributes in patient care include: feeding, toileting, bathing, ADLs, grooming, diabetes accu check, ambulating, transferring, hoyer lifts, positioning/repositioning, non-ambulatory care, stroke deficits, dementia, post surgery care, providing clean and safe environment. I started my journey as a home care aide, with experience I worked my way into a nurse delegated CNA position. I love every minute of it. I enjoy building a relationship with the people I work with, my main priority is to provide quality compassionate care. I think what makes me a great caregiver is my attentiveness to my clients, I listen to my clients, I'm there for my clients, my clients needs and changes are my concern. When it comes to the health and well being of my clients, I want to make sure that they are doing well, emotionally and physically.
What do I enjoy most about being a caregiver? I enjoy the interaction, i get to be in the presence of so many wonderful people who have stories to tell. It might sound cliche but I genuinely love knowing that i can help another person in this world, so that is exactly what i do.
I'm proud to be continuing my nursing education spring of 19' at Loyola University in Chicago, granting me a BSN degree.
Will be relocating end of November 2018, Olympia, WA to Oak Park, IL
I am a natural caregiver as the parent of a profoundly disabled, non-ambulatory, non-verbal child. I have experience doing all types of related tasks such as positioning, bathing, transfers, therapy assistance, g-tube feedings, pulmonary therapies, and schedule management. And I do so with a good attitude and plenty of patience. I can relate to the challenges that come with aging, disability, neurological conditions, and metabolic illness. I have an extensive knowledge of the human body as a martial artist and massage therapist. I am excited by specialized diets such as very low carb/ketogenic and have been practicing medicalized and blended diets for over 7 years. Within my personal life, I believe in all natural, spotlessly clean environments, and know that organization is key to keeping life running smoothly. I am punctual and reliable. I have always viewed life's challenges as opportunities for growth. Helping troubleshoot the issues that come with disabled life, hacks and assist others in recapturing a sense of normalcy is what makes me most happy.
