My background is in business administration and I have been employed in several types of business. For the past 17 years, as well as caring for several elderly family members within my own home, I have been employed as a nursing assistant/medication technician within the nursing home/rehab establishment as it is the most rewarding, fulfilling experience of all my employment positions. I have a sincere admiration and respect for the elderly, those who have endured much and need help in the latter part of their lives. I have attempted to go back to an office setting, but I always miss the hands on contact with the senior citizens of this day. Medication management allowed me to stay within the nursing home environment as I do have lifting restrictions due to rotator cuff surgery; however, some lifting is acceptable. I have many years of experience working for physicians, ie. internal medicine as well as psychiatry, as well as management and teaching within other organizations. Possessing many skills, I have chosen to use my talents within the elderly community.
