Profile

Hi, my name is Brenda. I have worked in health care since I was 17 years old. I got into health care after my grandmother died, she had cardiac problems for many years. I was her care giver, and after she died I applied at a small nursing home, and became a nurses aide. I worked there for 6 years, and then worked for a few home care agencies for another 4-5 years in Manchester, NH, where I come from. Then I eventually got a job at a local hospital were I worked as a nurses aide and moved my way up to being a Unit secretary and eventually an out-patient coordinator (20 years). I have always worked as a nurses aide due to the fact that I so enjoy working hands on with patients, that is truly where my heart is. I also have my BAS in Health Administration and hopefully someday hope to be an administrator in an organization. I have many years of experience with the elderly, hospice, palliative care, Oncology, Urology, and med surg patients.
