About Mayra

My name is Mayra Acuna and I am 25 years old. I am going to school to become a DNP (Doctor of Science in Nursing- Nurse Practitioner). I love working as a caregiver because I can help patients become as independent as possible so that they can continue living their life to the best of their abilities. I chose this job because once I graduate as a doctor (which is a couple years away), I will be able to assist my patients better and give them the proper care because I have been in their homes and have seen how they truly live. I think that it is very important for a caregiver to show love, passion, and compassion toward what they do, and that is exactly how I feel with this job. When I say that I am a caregiver, I say it with pride. A lot of people may view this as a just another job but for me, this is more than just a job, it is a steppingstone to what I want to do as a career for the rest of my life. Therefore, I take every day seriously and I treat every patient with the love and respect that I would treat someone from my family.
