About Virginia

I am a great caregiver because I first learned how to be one by helping my parents and my brother. They had certain disabilities, both physical and mental/psychological, that touched my heart and helped me realize the importance of quality of life to everyone, not just to those who are healthy. Then, I achieved 89 credits towards my BSN (bachelors degree in nursing) and graduated with honors in Surgical Technolgy from Tennessee Technology Center, First Aid at MTSU, and am a licensed CNA and am CPR/BLS certified, and have a Leadership Award from St. Thomas Hospital. I currently work at a hospital as a CNA/PCA and am looking to work part-time to possibly full-time for someone who has the need for home health and/or caregiver needs. I have excellent references and take my work seriously!

I worked in home healthcare as a caregiver for many years. I have always chosen jobs that allow me to interact with people because patience and interacting with all types of people are my strong points. I learned so much from the people I worked for that it really enriched my life. Since most of my clients suffered from Arthritis I took classes in Arthritis care and treatment and aim certified to teach land and water Arthritis exercise classes. I am also certified in CPR. For the past three years I have been a volunteer at St. Baldricks, a non profit charity for childhood cancer. This reinforced to me how important it is for any family to have support for their family members when they can't be there. I really enjoy being able help families know that their loved ones are in good hands.

I think I'm good caregiver because I love what I do. I am patient and respectful of my clients, I like for them to feel comfortable and that they can trust me. The thing I enjoy most about this job is making them feel safe. I became a caregiver when my Grams got sick and I didn't know how to care for her so I went a and learned how and that was about 20 years ago. I am a very reliable Christian. I have very good references. I am willing to travel 50 miles for 3-5 days live-in positions. My availability is Sun am - Fri 4pm.
