I have a few years of experience in the medical field. I was a CNA for a year, a medical assistant since 2011, and I graduated LVN school in 2014/and am currently studying to obtain my license for Vocational Nursing in the state of Texas. I am caring,compassionate, responsible, reliable, and good with time management. I see my patients as family and care for them as if they were my own family member.

For me I guess it became evident early on in my life, that what I love to do is to take care of others. I was married for 21 years and took care of elderly in-laws, and parents till they passed on, and it made me realize how special those with special needs are and how much 1 simple smile, listening ears, and touch can comfort even a stranger. None of us are promised tomorrow and on April 1, 2004 I lost my oldest son in the war in Iraq.... to me that was the most devastating thing to go through that any parent could endure. I mention this because after Dusty's death my life was forever changed and out of it, I was afforded the opportunity to go to school and get certified as a CNA for the state of Texas. I had volunteered and shadowed at a long term center and my fellow friends said Lisa you like this you should get certified.... and so I did. I tell everyone that being a caregiver is not a job for me it is a call in my life. It requires compassion and I am devoted to do the very best I can do for the person I am providing care for and it goes beyond just the daily ADL's, this encompasses being a good listener and encouraging them to achieve the best possible for them and their loved ones. It requires team work from the person receiving the care to the family and loved ones, and of course me the caregiver. In closing thankyou for this opportunity. Sincerely, Lisa G. Sekula

I have been an LVN for 20+ years. I don't believe there has ever been a time when I haven't cared for someone. But now my kids are all grown up now. My last employer was an elderly lady whom I worked for 12 years. She has since passed away. I'm looking for someone who needs me. I strongly believe caring for people and pets is my calling, that is where I feel at home.
