I grew up taking care of my grandfather and grandmother whom unfortunately past away from liver-related and diabetical issues. After that, I began focusing on my passion which is using my engineering abilities in order to help people with various illnesses live a better and more comfortable life. My goal after completing school is to work towards the inventions of med-technological devices that improve living conditions for people around the world. With good personal assistant experience and knowledge of engineering, I will stop at no cost of my goal of improving the world.
I am a very lovable, outgoing, personable, empathetic, and genuine caregiver. I have a unique caring nature about me that I was born with. As a little kid I would find animals that were hurt and restore their health and send them on their way or keep them as I have one of them till this day. My mother noticed it and told me I would make a great nurse someday. Before both my grandparents passed away I helped them through the difficult end. They both said never lose sight of your dreams of becoming a nurse and to pursue caring for people because I am incredible at it. I've cared for a wide range of amazing people. When I am taking care of someone that is when I am my happiest. I'm proud that I have stuck with this for so long because really it comes naturally so it's easy for me. I am proud that I had such wonderful influences growing up. Even without them I think my passion for caring would still be in my heart.

I Mary really enjoy my career as a homr care provider, I became even more interested after working as an medical assistant along side Dr. John R Shaw. We had several geriatrics as our patients, it was then as I observed the struggles some had even getting to our office. Dr. Shaw unfortunately passed away a few years after I working with him. So at this point is when I decided to dedicate my skills and began reaching out to Seniors. I truly enjoy getting to know clients and really enjoy the stories, memories, looking at photos with them from their past. It's very interesting & fun. I feel very good at the end of my day, knowing I made my client (s) happy and to feel that they feel safe,comfortable, secure. Is a great feeling to go home with. A professional achievement I can say will l ways stick with me, is when I assisted Marie when I began with her she was bed-ridden, wouldn't eat much if at all. I immediately began communication with her daughter and stated I felt perhaps she was taking to many medications in one sitting, and throughout the day. Well it began with her daughter bringing over all medications and we sat and went through each one. At is point I discovered that she was on some medications that where for the same diagnosis.. Some to lower and some to higher. So we begin pulling the ones I suggested to her daughter that should be taken way, weaned off of etc. Long story short we went and visited her physician and started with removing some etc. What a difference she began making progress, We got physical therapy to come into the home I continued to assist on a daily with her exercising. And she began to walk with her walker once again! Her appetite & over all health improved. She began attending her card games at the club house, played bingo etc . It was a wonderful feeling for me knowing I got her outta being bed- bound.
