Christina R.|Fitchburg, MA
22 yrs old
I am a Certified Nursing Assistant, and am studying towards my Medical Assistant and EMT certifications. I am also CPR, First Aid, and OSHA certified. I have always known that I wanted a career in the health care field because I have a passion for helping others. I think it is important to give of yourself for others because everybody needs help at times. I have experience working with seniors. I completed my CNA internship in Fitchburg. There I cared with seniors with Alzheimer's, limited mobility, difficulty eating, history of stroke, blindness, and many other difficulties. I also completed an internship in Fitchburg, where I cared for people ranging from teenagers to seniors who have mental and physical disabilities. I also have experience helping my mother care for my father. He is a 58-year-old who suffered from a stroke 2 years ago, leaving him with slurred speech and limited mobility due to partial paralysis. My favorite part about working with seniors is the communication. I love hearing stories, receiving tokens of their wisdom, or just simply put being someone to listen. A little bit about my personal life: I am a Senior. At school, I hold a class officer position, am involved in the drama club, student council, and softball. I also take advanced placement academic classes. Although the school year is approaching, I will still be able to work part-time. However, for the duration of the summer I am available full-time. Thank you so much for your time and consideration. Also, I am able to start working right away. Have a fantastic day!
