Hi, my name is Kierra and I have been a caregiver for 3 years, but don't let my short time being a caregiver fool you. I am an EXCELLENT caregiver! I am a patient, trustworthy, dependable, empathetic, diligent caregiver. I love caregiving, my favorite part is making my clients happy, and reminding them that they still have a purpose and are needed. I truly believe that the amount of good, quality care that is given, plays a huge role in the healing process, and keeps those we love with us longer.
One day I want to be a geriatrics nurse. In Colorado I went to school and finished my CNA course with a 4.0 GPA. I will be starting online schooling to get my general courses out of the way so when I go to nursing school I won't have so much on my plate. Anyway, that's a little bit about me!
