I am a 30 year old mother starting nursing school. I have been working in assisted living facilities with both the mentally challenged and elderly since I was 17. My grandmother was an RN who owned a facility, which I grew up in. I am a natural nurturer who loves helping those in need. I enjoy getting to know my clients. I always have a smile on my face so that my clients can always feel loved and reassured that they are in great hands. I am also CPR certified.
