We've included Vanessa's bio for your reading pleasure.
Vanessa is a Puerto Rican woman that has learned in life that the way we treat each other leaves a mark for life. She has been blessed with 2 amazing daughters that she will love eternally. Besides working as a caregiver, she loves to volunteer at her church to serve the community. She always finds time to watch sunsets, talk with family and friends and read books. She married a wonderful man and together they enjoy, studying the Bible, traveling, hiking, exploring places, watching football and working out. With this union, she has inherited two wonderful children. Vanessa’s youngest daughter was diagnosed with cancer. While she was going to the treatments at the hospital she was amazed by the way the nurses and nurse assistants treated her daughter. She said; “they treated my daughter like it was their own child”. After her daughter went to heaven, she wanted to contribute back to others what she received from the example of the nurses and nurse assistants. In 2010 she changed careers and starting working as a CNA. She started at a nursing home, then she took the opportunity to work with individuals who have Cerebral Palsy. That’s when she discovered that working in a one on one atmosphere was her best fit. Her compassion, empathy, respect, responsibility, friendliness and accountability have helped her to be the caregiver she is today. Her goals as a professional for the future is to have the opportunity to teach others how to improve relationship with clients and others.
Well stated Vanessa
