Marlena’s Bio

I am a Human nutrition, foods and exercise student at Virginia Tech looking for some experience in the field of Healthcare. I am interested in becoming a doctor and want to experience all areas of health before applying to medical school. I have CPR and First aid certifications as well as athletic training/ physical therapy experience. I have an older sister who is currently a nurse at UNC medical center and I have a proficient understanding of hospital procedures. I also have experience with medical terminology witch will allow me to assist with explaining hospital procedures to the patient. I also have training in health counseling and can handle the emotional taxes that come along with being a care companion and know how to properly console a patient and their family. I believe that one of the most important aspects of medicine is understanding the patient and I believe that being a care companion can be the best start to my medical career.
