The reason why I became a caregiver because I love providing home care-giving services to those that would otherwise not be able to do so. What I like about being a caregiver is the smile on their faces and my personal achievements that I'm proud of is overwhelming and makes me feel I have done my job right. I have always enjoyed helping people so I know I am doing the right thing. My name is Shawna White and I have over 10 years of experience in being a caregiver. I'm 51 years old and a mother of 3 girls.I enjoy the opportunity to impact clients’ lives and make a difference to them. I appreciate the chance to get to know clients and their families and become an integral part of their lives.I always give 100% and do the best job I can, with no exceptions or excuses.
