I have over 10 years experience working in long term care and hospital settings in different capacities. I have been a Patient Services Manager in a Hospital and a Director of Food and Nutrition. I've also worked in Public Health as the Health Educator for the County. In addition I was an After school Director for 9 years. I love children, elderly and dogs.
I have many certification which include my Health Care Aide certification, nurse delegation and diabetes certification. If delegated by a nurse I can give medication, insulin, and other delegated responsibilities. I've been trained as a Med Tech in a 60 bed facility and passed the entire AM med pass. I worked in an assisted living facility with Alzheimer and dementia patient. We also had 10 hospice patients who I personally cared had the pleasure of caring for through the end of their life.
Most importantly, I have a natural ability to connect with those I care for. I believe in treating people with respect and dignity.
