I am a loving and caring individual that loves to help others. The fact that my brother is a handicap and I grew up helping him as much as I could gave me that passion and motivation to care for others. The satisfaction that it gives me been able to care for those that are sick and be their helping hand, and see how much they appreciate what I do for them. The fact that I have been able to be a caregiver for 24 years working in hospitals is one of my greatest accomplishments.
