Ever since i was a child i always loved helping the elderly.When someone was hurt i always knew exactly what to do without being told.My grandma always said i would be inthe medical field because i always remained calm,knew what to do,how to handle any situation.As i got older i continued to assist elders and others without any hesitation.My life as been to help others reguardless of what the situation.iPeople always come to me for advice and guidence because i am a good listener,I like solving problems and enjoy helping others to solve problems.I later started working as a caregiver,than became HHA/Medication aide,than CNA/Medication aide and at my last job i was promoted to a supervisor.I have alot of strength,awarness,compassione,and am a good team leader.I like to teach and to help others when they are having trouble.I look at people and see when they have good potential and i can see their strengths and try to help others to grow to their full potentials in life.
