I started out working as an aide at 17 years old. From there, I attended PN School and became an LPN specializing in geriatrics. Over the course of my career, I worked in LTC with a variety of residents, ranging in age from 20 to over 100. I cared for those with dementia, Alzheimer's, AID, Hep C, schizophrenia, and mental health issues, etc. I worked in the state of Maryland that allowed me to do things such as peritoneal dialysis, wound care, catheter insertion, PEG tube placement, and medications, etc. I also worked as a supervisor, directly responsible for those who worked under me, working directly with physicians and the medical director requiring I know everything about each and every resident in the facility.
I worked with care planning, goal planning, as well as worked with scheduling and teaching. What I pride myself on is being an advocate for my residents. I ensured that their needs were met. My passion is caring for others.
