1. At a very young age I wanted to be a nurse, years ago CNA education was free so that was my start. 2. The look of appreciation, and the feel I get from assisting a client with what may seem so simple to some, but challenging to them, especially the elders. And if you can make one person happy that always makes a difference. 3. Being the caregiver for my mother,witnessing each and every stage of Alzheimer for the last 10 yrs. of her life,til her last breath, she taught me most importantly, patience in giving care, i'm so proud to have been the one for her journey back. SO PROUD! 4. Good interpersonal and organizational skills able to work productively in complexed environments.Strong physical stamina, follow orders, communicates effectively, works well with other members of the team. I have been certified 4 times since 1986.
