About Kayla

Hello there, Kayla here! For starters, to give you insight into a little bit about myself: I am a 19 year old female who is currently pursuing a career in English at Texas State! As a humanitarian at heart with a deep faith, I have an overflowing love for people and genuinely feel fulfilled when I help others. Upon volunteering at the nursing home, being a camp counselor, babysitting, and volunteering at my local animal shelter, I believe that one of my main purposes in life is to be of service to those in need. I have discovered through my journey so far that one of the ideal ways to show those around me that I genuinely care, is to give the sacrifice of my time and truly listen and be there as a burden-bearer. Most people just want to know that they are being heard and what they have saying is worth having an open ear to; they just want to know that they are important and loved. As an individual with a perfectionist, over-achieving attitude, I am willing to give my all at whatever task that I am presented with. This is demonstrated through my first ranking in high school and my first two semesters of college on the Dean's List so far!

My personality & perspective of life helps me create greats bonds and connections with others. As a caregiver I like to pride myself with the gift of service. I have been blessed to work with some wonderful families and clients whose life stories inspire me in my personal development. What I like most about helping families is knowing that I am helping assist and uplift families with quality care for their loved ones.

I realized I was meant to be a caregiver after caring for my grandparent in-law's and father till they all passed away. I treasure that time and the memories I have from being their primary caregiver during their final years. I have always enjoyed working with eldery, having done volunteer work since my teens, but these situations made me realize how much I enjoy caring for them, and that I am good at it. I gained confidence in abilities like incontinence care, bathing, wound care, giving medications, pic lines, feeding, mouth/nail care and other activities of daily living.
