About Mavis

I have 4+ years of proven experience effectively and efficiently managing patients care. I am an extremely organized, calm, and patient professional with excellent healthcare skills. I have a passion for providing quality care to patients, and the necessary leadership skills to inspire other staff members to strive to provide above standard levels of service. In my present role as registered nurse at Northern Virginia mental Health Institute, I am tasked with evaluating the medical conditions of patients daily and developing and directing a rotational system to manage the care of patients and otherwise coordinate workforce management. During this time, I've been recognized as a dedicated, ambitious, and reliable person who has the ability to work without supervision. In addition, my four years of experience as a CNA at Westmister lake Ridge helped me realize and implement clinical duties I learned during the course of my education. While employed there, I was commended for proficiently handling difficult situations with patients and their family members. I feel confident that my experience will be extremely beneficial to you. I am ready to put my skills to work and would love to bring my passion as a care giver to your home.
