My goal is to obtain employment in the field of Human Service to which I can apply my education, training and numerous years of community service and volunteer experience with the senior population. As a caregiver my situation is unique. I am also the daughter of a US Army veteran who is currently receiving personal care. This experience has taught me a deep level of empathy and respect for those I serve. It has also giving me the unique ability to be able to cultivate and navigate through interpersonal relationships with clients and family members while keeping professional boundaries. As the wife of an US Army soldier and the mother of six , I have a highly developed sense of time management and organization. Scheduling, critical thinking , and problem solving are also part of my skill set. My previous 20 plus years experience as a business owner has given me the ability harness professional and personal attributes that have made it my personal mission to provide exceptional service to extraordinary clients with integrity, compassion, dignity and respect. ... more
