Getting into nursing school has been a life long goal of mine and each semester I move forward is another huge accomplishment for myself that I am prou d of. Furthermore, what I like about caregiving is the feeling I get after helping individuals and their families. There is no better feeling I get than the one I get after knowing I have truly helped others whether be by assisting a resident with doing their activities of daily living or by providing compassion, love, and empathy for an individual and their loved ones. I have a great deal of experience in working with alzheimer's and dementia patients and have an expertise in overcoming certain obstacles those suffering with the disease may face. i am very friendly, dependable, professional, and fun!
