I am a certified med tech at the nursing home I work. I am a junior in college, so I work there in the summer and on college breaks. I have worked there since 2010. I was a server in the dining room until May when I got CPR, First Aide, Dementia, Caregiver, and Diabetic training. I honestly love working with older people because it can be so rewarding, and I just like knowing that you can be a friend to them and learn so much from their experiences. I volunteered at the same nursing home I work for two years prior to starting work in skilled nursing helping with crafts and activities. I have also shadowed the Occupational Therapist there for about 75 hours because I am in school for OT. I have a sister who has special needs and come from a family of seven, so I have a lot of patience. I am a good listener with a big heart and feel for other people very deeply. I play lacrosse at college and am an honor society and honor program student. I take all my work seriously and do not like to let people down.
