I got started in this career field by taking care of my great grandmother and always wanted it to be my turn. I love that I get to do what I love for a living and get paid for it .I raised 6 children as a single parent and they are successful and independent and law abiding citizen. I began in this career at 15 by taking care of my great grandmother then 2 years later I got my first job as a dietary aide and nursing assistant. I stayed in the field for 22 years then took 12 years of to finish raising my 4 sons and 2 daughters now they are grown and I am ready to get back to work. I aspire to become a RN and a Registered Dietitian now I can because all of them are grown and on their own! ... more
