About Athena

I love caring. For people and making them feel better anyway I can . I have worked in several different environments such as homes , nursing homes. Assisted living , hospitals , rehabs. From the young to the elderly... Being there for people when they can't do for themselves and making them feel better is what I love.. The smile on their faces let's me know I'm doing my job and that's rewarding to me. My biggest achievement, are my two beautiful Children! We are a team! I am a funny, kind, loving, person.

    I am interested in being a caregiver because I am extremely passionate about about helping others, whether it is physically, mentally, emotionally or all three. I enjoy getting to know others and and their stories because no two people are the same. I posses reliability, respectfulness, resiliency, and accuracy in all things I involve myself in. I am currently in nursing school and plan on making a lifelong career out of this profession.
