About Valentino

My 3 years Nursing Eduacation and experience working for Las Palmas Health Care Center, Patient Care Coordinator- Sun - Glo Home Health, Casa del Sol Adult Day Care Center - Director of Activities. I cared for a family member and working as a Patient Care Assistant made me pursue caring for those in need . I completed the LVN program for 2 semesters but I was missing the last semester for the Psychology courses which I know earned a minor in Psychology and 27 hours in Rehab- Counseling Graduate school at UTPA. I am proud of making a difference in someone's life and when I was told by my client you have always been here for me more than my own kids on your time off and you are all I have , I will always remember those special words. My goal is to meet their needs and to work hard in order to reach highest level of comfort and safety environment for my client's. I am their voice and I will do my best at all times .
