Moved to Alaska in 2002, after graduating from Harding University with my Bachlors in Social Work. These are just two of my goals in life God blessed me to be able to achieve. While working on my major in Searcy, Ar. I worked at a group home with the developmentally delayed adults for 4 years. White "Counnty Group Home." I took on odd side jobs for individuals at the Church I attended, Downtown Church of Christ in Searcy, Ar. One was helping an elderly lady with Alzheimers. However, I had work with many individual similar with daily and household assistance. Since my move up to Alaska, I had worked at the Hope Community Resource Inc. as a SSI. I transported, prepared as well as fed the individual in home setting. Assisted with giving meds, all individual care in bathing and changing clothes in the home of the individuals. Since my mother is now 84 years old, I have been finding and caring for her needs. I am now assisting her with behavior evaluation care. The elderly are a group of individuals who are at risk. They need much understanding and patient when assisting them. My love for children and elderly has prompted me to further my education now. I am working on my masters in education.
