I graduated college with an Associates degree in Applier Sciences then worked for as a medical assistant for 2 years for doctors who specialized in geriatrics, although I absolutely loved my patients I wanted to be with them longer than the usual doctor's visit. I got married in February and moved with my husband who is currently serving the military and I thought it would be a great opportunity to strive for something I have a passion for, helping others. I fell in love with the age group that has so many stories and advice to give from my very first day at the clinic. I am fluent in English and Spanish so communication is not an issue, I love being able to help others and am incredibly friendly. I get along with pretty much h everyone as soon as we get over the shy face of me which typically does not last long at all. I am extremely familiar with medications and common disorders, I am comfortable with all pets of that is ever a concern. My mother has worked as a caregiver for over 10 years and although I did go to school for something different I found that this is what I have a passion for.
