I enjoy helping others and that is why I chose the medical field. I have never worked as a caregiver in a home setting before, only in the hospital setting but I would love to start. I think working in a home setting gives the caregiver the opportunity to interact more with and become closer to the patient and I think that is something that I would really enjoy. A personal achievement I am proud of is finishing my medical assistant program because I have learned so much and also staying at BSA as long as I have working as a nurse aid because it can be very stressful sometimes but I believe that it has changed me for the better. I've learned how to help others who cannot always help themselves and it has honestly made me stronger as a person. I recently moved back to Amarillo from being stationed at fort Sam Houston in San Antonio Texas where I finished training to become a medic for the us navy and marine corps.
