About Thomas

I became a caregiver to provide a descent life for others as well as satisfy my need to help others. It offers me a sense of pride to be able to help others who are less fortunate than I am. I also feel gratified when my client embraces me as a friend or mentor. One of my Proudest moments came during a crisis management situation where I was the only person able to calm my client down until his Mother had gotten there. It showed a level of trust and understanding. I am a go getter. Im not happy until my goals are reached or if I fail then i cannot be content unless I knew I put forth maximum effort
