I grew up in a culture in which family members give much importance to not only taking care of each other when young but also when they are old. Many of my friends' grandparents lived with them all their lives. Since I was young I wanted to be either a doctor or a teacher and for sure I've followed by calling. I just feel good when I help somebody. I love taking care of my husband and daughter. I have a BA in English and I have some nursing studies. I have worked in nursing homes, hospital and assisted living facilities. I've given care to patients, taken blood pressure, bathed, fed, changed diapers, cleaned colostomy stoma, ulcers, changed feeding tubes... I've been a Spanish teacher and for the past 6 years I've been working as a Bilingual Special Education Teacher Assistant. Because of my job and my past experiences dealing with people, I have developed a special attention to details and ability to solve problems. I consider myself an energetic, confident, patient, observant, empathetic, compassionate, dependable, trustworthy, competent, honest attentive person of sound judgement.
