About Ashley

I became a caregiver because I love providing home caregiving services to those that would otherwise not be able to do so. The smile on their faces is overwhelming and makes me feel I have done my job right. I have always enjoyed helping people so I know I am doing the right thing. What I like about being a caregiver is the compassion and bond that is established between client and provider. The feeling knowing that you are making a significant difference in someone's life is unfathomable. A personal achievement I am proud of would be the first in my family (as well as extended) to go off to college (The Ohio State University) and establish and begin to develop a life for myself while exploring new places. I am intellectual, enthusiastic, humble, caring, mindful, respectful, honest, and hard working.

    A certified nursing assistant's (CNA) main role is to provide basic care to patients, as well as assist them in daily activities they might have trouble with on their own, such as bathing, clothing, grooming, light house work, cooking, errands, transportation, and any other need of the client that requires assistance. Because of the personal nature of the job, certified nursing assistants should be compassionate and enjoy helping others.

    I have been taking care of people for 12 years. I have both cna and nursing experience. Caregiving is not just a job for me, it is my passion. I love helping people. I believe that our seniors deserve to be treated like Kings and Queens, they have worked all their lives. I'm blessed to still have 3 grandmothers, 3 grandfathers and one great grandmother alive. I cherish every moment with them. Along with my passion to be a caregiver, I am a hard worker. I don't mind going the extra mile when needed.
