Personal Care Assistant Available Part-Time
My love for the older adult population started when I was 8 and had a grandmother passing from emphysema. Every time I got to see her, I would help feed and do what I could to take care of her.
I graduated from East Carolina University with a BS in Recreational Therapy and an emphasis in Gerontology. I completed my internship in an Activities Department at a Nursing Home. After graduation, I became an Activities Assistant at a Nursing Home in Franklin, NC for several years.
My family and I moved to Denver, CO where I became a Caregiver for a Home Care Agency and took care of an adult male with late stage Alzheimer's . Within four months, I was promoted to an office position and became the Intake Care Coordinator.
For the past two and a half years, I have worked for a local Agency here in My. Airy, first being hired on as the Recruitment Coordinator and then the Scheduling Coordinator.
Older adults have been a lifelong passion of mine.
