Sweet, Attentive Med Student!

When I was studying Duke, I used to love getting off campus each week to visit folks at a nursing home. It was so refreshing to me to be around people who weren't in the 20-24 age range! I gained so much wisdom just from chatting about their lives, or if they had limited speaking capabilities, I enjoyed reading to them, painting their nails, and decorating their rooms for the holidays.
Now in medical school, I've found myself wanting the same break from the routine interactions I have within my school bubble. I gained experience this year with night shift care taking, and I would love to do evenings/overnight shifts again!
I am first-aid and CPR certified, have worked in a hospital, understand many medical conditions, and speak Spanish. I will also be earning a Counseling Psychology degree, and am very comfortable having conversations about the challenges that come with aging. I will provide an uplifting, comfortable environment for your loved one!
