Profile

I thoroughly enjoy working with people and find it very rewarding when I am able to help others out in any situations they are faced with. I have over 8 years experience (10+ years in retail/restaurant management) in healthcare settings. I was Nurse Attendant/Orderly and Patient Care Tech for a hospital for 6 years 8/2008 to 8/2014. I currently am a Life's Skills Trainer for a brain injury center (fulltime) on the weekends. I am a very compassionate caregiver, reliable team player, adaptable. My experiences range from CPR/First Aid certified (was on code blue/compression team at the hospital), feeding assistance expert (aspiration precautions, thick it, etc), dementia/Alzheimer knowledge, vital signs, medications, companionship and emotional support. I look forward to helping and working with seniors and/or disabled individuals to accomplish their goals of staying in their homes. I must say, I know I can each day, walk out feeling satisfied and blessed knowing I have made someone's day safe and bright. I look forward to providing your family member with the care they need.
