Other Qualifications, Certifications and Credentials
I am trained in first aid and CPR.
Many years ago, I enrolled in college, planning to become a nurse. That lasted a couple of quarters, then I moved to a different state, and I got off track. I started working in the engineering and construction industry. I worked hard, got promotions, and earned a nice paycheck. Then I started dreading work. I felt like no one appreciated what I did or understood the importance of my job, and I realized that...
Many years ago, I enrolled in college, planning to become a nurse. That lasted a couple of quarters, then I moved to a different state, and I got off track. I started working in the engineering and construction industry. I worked hard, got promotions, and earned a nice paycheck. Then I started dreading work. I felt like no one appreciated what I did or understood the importance of my job, and I realized that my hard work only put more money into the pockets of the stockholders.
After almost 25 years, I needed a career change. I remembered that I had wanted to study nursing, and I tried to remember why. The answer was simple, I wanted to help people. I wanted to make life pleasant and easier for people who were not able to take care of themselves. I wanted to make things better, make people happier, make a difference, and know that what I did was important.
I resigned from the corporate world and started helping people in their homes. I started out as a professional organizer then also started cleaning houses. I got some regular customers, and they referred me to their friends. When one of my customers had some surgery and needed a little more help at home while she recovered, she called on me. I helped her get out of bed in the mornings and get dressed, fixed her breakfast and lunch, and took her to appointments and on errands. She recovered nicely, and I helped. She was grateful and I was fulfilled.
So, through a long and arduous route, I discovered that providing home healthcare is something I love, and I became a certified nursing assistant. I look forward to work every day. I like making someone's day a little brighter. I like helping people thrive. I am eager to use my CNA skills to help others have a richer life.
I would like to work in Roswell or Sandy Springs one or two days a week, for a few hours each day.
