I felt the calling for a couple of years, before I applied for my first job, I was not sure I could do it, but I found that I could do it, and found that I am fairly good at it. I think my extreme empathy, and compassion help me in my work. I have learned so much. I spent years working on things that would be obsolete in six months and got tired of it. Most of my family has had healthcare careers. The buzz and fulfillment of helping others became overpowering to me. To see one client have that small but significant breakthrough in a day? Job One, Job Done! I have a good sense of humor and bring a spirit of fun to my work when possible.
