About Sheena

I have always had a desire to give back and to help people. I wasn't able to do it financially so I wanted to do so in another way. I then decided to enter into the medical field. I find much joy in what I do as a Certified Nursing Assistant. With many years of working with the geriatric community, I find myself enjoying their wisdom. Working with them is never a dull moment. No day is the same. They are very appreciative of the care and companionship that I give. Being and feeling appreciated is what makes me love what I do more. Giving families a peace of mind knowing that their loved one is being cared for and getting the proper care, attention and treatment that is needed when they are not able to, is one thing I always strive for. Not only am I a CNA, I am also a Certified Medical Assistant with 2 years of clinical experience and a MedTech as well. Also, I am currently CPR certified. With 10 years is the medical field, I have much experience. I not only give quality personal care, I have experience in administering medication, checking and monitoring glucose levels, meal preparation, transporting clients/residents to physician appointments as well as different activities. I have no issues with light housekeeping.
