34 yrs old
Part-Time Care Giver - Potentially Full-Time
From 2007-2015 I worked as a State Tested Nursing Assistant (2007-2014 Bowling Green Care Center, 2013-2015 St. Clare Commons). Over the course of the last three years (2015-2018) I switched my interests into the law field, where I have been working as a legal assistant. The ONLY reason I decided to choose a different field is because of the "politics" of Long Term, Skilled, and Assisted Living communities. My day-to-day job as an STNA included all the "activities of daily living" i. e. bathing, dressing, brushing teeth, etc. Additionally, working with people who have had surgeries (knee replacement, hip replacement) basically the do's and don't when it comes to ambulating. I also am very experienced working with Alzheimer/Dementia patients! I've been out of the field for a little while, but am ready to get back in! I miss the prideful feeling when you make a patient smile or laugh. For some reason I just "click" with seniors!
