About Karen

I'm a great caregiver cause I love to help people. I've been doing it since 1981 after I graduated high school. My sister was born with Measles on her brain and I couldn't take care of her. So becoming a CNA was my goal after her death. I wanted to be able to help people. Every family or facilities I've ever worked would hire me back. Family members still stay in touch with me. It's good to have someone care for your loved one when you can't I can be feeling down and go to work my client put a smile on my face. I love taking care of elderly people or just being able to help someone like my sister needed help. I've done other jobs,but caring for clients is my gift from God to be able to be patient,caring loving for people who need help.

I wanted to become a CNA because, I want to accomplish something important in my life. As a CNA I am making a difference in not only the lives of the patients that I help, but also their friends and families. I am helping to make many peoples lives more comfortable, and it can be a very rewarding experience. With me being a CNA is a great way for me to really test myself on my goals and to exposes myself to many members of the health care team. Going through training was hard work and being in charged with caring for sick people isn't something to be taking for granted. You have to have the will and desire to help people. You also have to have patience and to be very compassionate. You have to be committed to a physically demanding job, with little tolerance for poor work ethic. I feel what makes me a good caregiver is with the 20 years experience in the medical field, I bring an additional quality that makes me the best person for the job--and that's my passion for excellence. I am passionately committed to producing very good results. I have excellent communications skills, strong organizational skills, to be a willing team player and work well under pressure.
