About Vergena

I am a veteran of US Army. I was raised by both my parents and grandparents. I helped my grandparents with giving insulin daily when I was a teenager. Both my parents was sick with cancer and I took care of them both til their last breath. My grandmother was a nurse and was so compassionate. She always helped others in need and I am the same way. I have been working with the sick and shut in as well as children all my adult life. I went to school for CNA and Early childhood development. I'm very family oriented and I love to give back and put a smile on people face whenever possible.

I enjoy helping people and making a difference in their lives. I received certification in excellence training in Dimentia and Alzheimers. Comforting people and making them laugh/smile is one of my strengths. When I care for people I feel like I have done a good deed and I'm doing what I was put on this Earth to do. A personal achievement I am proud of is getting the proper training and experience I need in the medical field to successfully share my gift with others.
