About Pratima

I am a very people-friendly person. I have been working as a CNA since almost four years (I have been in the US since five years). My dad chose myself a career pathway for my future- Nursing. He is 64 and my mom is 63. I love taking care of elderly people as they are very near to my heart. My personal achievement till now is I live with my parents and I am getting to take care of them as much as I want to. "Caregiving" term is itself exciting for me.
