Im a positive outgoing person and full of energy maybe to much. That's one of the reasons why I feel I can make a difference in others lives. I have enough positivity and energy to share with everyone. While being in highschool I took a nursing class which allowed me to volunteer at the nursing home near my school which was amazing to me ! Everyone said I loved it way more than I should but they don't get to see the most amazing things that come from helping others! I also went to a elementary school that was down the road from my school which allowed me to volunteer with special education and pre development with pre schoolers. That also was so amazing im so lucky I had the chance to do that and or be allowed. So with all that I decided to go to Tide Water Community college in Virginia Beach and get my CNA. Which was the best choice I ever made. I will be finished by October 31 or November 10 we're waiting for an evaluator to pick up our testing date. While taking this class I have been doing clinicals at a nursing home near the school. I wasn't there long and after two days I had already fallen in love with all the residents. I love helping people and Its something that comes naturally to me. I love how they become family and to me it's helping me learn how to appreciate the little things in life. You also meet amazing people that having amazing story's. So I hope that you take me in to consideration because I promise I'll treat your family like it's my own.

My name is Mary Ronnie I am 42 yrs old I am happily married with 3 beautiful young adult children ages 22, 19, &16i am currently working with home health agency but looking to get out of the agency in the near future or asap. I am in high demand through the agency and I have lots of references. My background and how I became who I am today. I was a preschool teacher for 14 years with the same school. St Peters Episcopal Day School. Which I loved doing, In the month of October 2016 my dad who is retired Navy 22 yrs and retired NewportNews shipbuilding 27 yrs was diagnosed with advanced progressed ALS Lou Gherings disease. After being diagnosed he went bed-bound in two months. My mom had to retire also. I quit my job and I took such good care of my dad. I have references of the doctors and nurses that came to our home and asked if I was a nurse. I keped everything organized and neat and clean I educated my self and learned so much. My dad was a complicated patient. As the ALS progressed so fast he required a non invasive ventilator to help him breath, he had a peg tube "G"tube for food and water because he could not swallow safely , a chronic Foley catheter also a nephrostomy tube coming to drain urine from his kidney. I am very proud for the work that I did for caring for my dad. I also have lots of wound care experience. I enjoyed taking care of my dad, that when he did pass away Sept 2 2018 that I got my certification to care for the elderly and critically ill paitents. I flew through school because I had already taken care of the worst for two years. I enjoy caring for him so much that he has enlightened me on a whole new career path.
