I am a 29 year old caregiver. I received my Certified Nursing Assistant certification in 2011.My primary clinical rotations were in memory care/alz/dementia, post-op rehab, and senior care. I have a background in home-care staffing, years experience working with seniors with various physical and cognitive disabilities. I was a Activities Assistant for Northern Illinois Special Recreation Association, leading adults and seniors with various disabilities in a recreational setting.I am drug/alcohol/smoke free. I am English speaking. I am looking for part-time (30-35hrs) or fill-in hours as a CNA or companion. I am currently in school for a career change to pursue additional certifications in Medical Assisting and Community Health. I have experience in vitals, gait belt, bathing, feeding, and more.

Beyond health, nutrition, and fitness I have a passion for the arts. I was a performer in music and theater for many years and love to sing and dance. I also enjoy cooking and baking.
