I am a student at Old Dominion University. I will be a junior this coming fall semester. I originally started school at Longwood University but I decided to transfer to ODU. I am a Therapeutic Recreation Major student. Therapeutic Recreation is a form of adaptive therapy to bring individuals with disabilities a higher quality of life the recreation and leisure. I would love to become a personal care provider in order to expand my knowledge of working with clients as well as help others that need it most. I am incredibly social and would be great company for an individual with any type of disability or individual with need for extra care. I have a history of internships with geriatric patients, individuals with dementia, mental impairments, and developmental delays. I enjoy helping patients and clients every day and would love for my services to be spread. I am happy interacting with patients or doing normal daily chores that can improve a clients life.

* What are your personality traits or expertise that help you be a great caregiver? * Patients have told me I am a very patient individual and they enjoy my presence. I enjoy one-on-one time to listen to their concerns, stories, and general conversation. * What attracted you to being a caregiver? * Growing up my mother was an LPN and my sister went on to become an LPN as well. After caring for my disabled Veteran husband from Aug. 2015 until Nov. 2017 I decided to take a Nurse Aide certification course to begin my journey in Healthcare. * What do you enjoy most about being a caregiver? * I enjoy brightening my patient's day, even if only a little. I enjoy watching my patient's heal and celebrating their accomplishments with them. One that sticks out is a patient that we were told would never walk or speak again. They would be completely bedridden and dependent on other people for the rest of their life. After weeks of care with my team the patient was walking with assistance, completing crossword puzzles, bathing themself, and talking our ears off. * What is a personal achievement you are proud of? * Though I was only employed by Riverside Hospital for 6 months (I had to leave due to family commitments), I received multiple Champion of Caring Nominations and my team won the Daisy Award.
