Interests

I enjoy cooking and cleaning but my favorite hobby is exercising. It keeps me strong, healthy, and motivated. Making lifting and transferring less difficult than it would be otherwise.

About Me

The first job I ever had, was working in a nursing home as a CNA at 17 in years old in 2006. I worked with elderly long term care patients, some had dementia, others were survivors of stroke. Some had to use wheelchairs. I also worked with survivors of car accidents that were unable to do any type of self care. I learned how to take vital signs, assist with bathing, transfer clients from bed to wheelchair, use gait belts and hoyer lifts, I've also worked as a DSP caring for clients that were developmentally disabled, performing very similar duties.
