At very young age I always knew I wanted t be a nurse. At 22 I became a Medical Assistant and worked in a Family Practice for eight years. I loved taking care of the patients and also grow close relationships with them. I love being a caregiver because I am able to connect with people and there needs and I love helping them in any way I can. An achievement would be people asking specifically to talk to me and some would wait to talk to me. They knew that the job would get done in a timely matter and I would want the same from someone I have to depend on also. I am very outgoing and easy to work with. I get along well with other employess and am willing to help them any way I can. I take pride in working with others.
