I started out doing homecare because I needed a job. Then wanted certified so went back to school to get CNA. Also I have realized that i seldom call in sick, because I enjoy caring for others. When I started classes my teacher let me help train our class there was 18 students. I strongly expressed to the students, treat the clients as you would treat your parents. Still to this day clients are treated with respect and compassion. (Strickly professional) . My accomplishments; received my CNA. In 2008, I finished up my GED, in order to go back to college. Graduated in 2011, with Assoc. Degree. As my daughters improve their education, I follow behind them. I enjoy meeting people, learning different ways people live. Listen to their stories.
