SUMMARY

I'm a loving Certified Nursing Assistant with 8 years of work experience in a fast-paced LTAC setting, handling confidential paperwork, assisting with physical therapy and occupational therapy, and providing quality care. I’ve also worked as an Adult Foster Caregiver for the elderly where I assisted with doctor appointments, administering medication, wound care, assisted with feeding, and activities of daily living. I look forward to providing my patients with the same care I may one day need!
