Web Tools

Summary

I am currently working as a full-time certified medical assistant. I am also enrolled in school working towards my RN. I am very comfortable with communicating with people. My typing skills are very strong.

Interest

My number one interest is my children. I have a two year old daughter and a one year old son. My children are my joy. Another interest that I just became interested in is pancreas divisum. I would like to found out if this birth defect is present in certain ethnic backgrounds.

Section 2

I am going to add a food tool to my portfolio. I will add this because it gives more of an insight to my personality. This tool could also help with various health issues. Certain health problems need special diets, such as high blood pressure patients should be on a low sodium diet. I think that this tool will be help with my knowledge in the healthcare industry. I think that it will also help in my personal life. It will allow me to create now meals for my family. Overall a food web tool would be beneficial to me for two reasons. Reason one, this web tool will allow me to be able to teach patients good skills with cooking that pertains to health issues that they may have. The second reason, it will allow me to be able to be more creative in cooking meals for my family.

I am also going to add to my portfolio the web tool community. I think that this web tool will allow me to stay in touch with the various events and activities that take place in my community. This web tool will allow a list and blogs of what other family’s do and what places they enjoy visiting. This tool would be beneficial to my career because it will show different business in the community. The community tool may help businesses come together to help the children and low income families. The community web tool would help many people; it will bring people of all ages and race together.
