Meet Chioma

  • Comfortable with pets

Hi, my name is Chioma Ohakam and I am a go-getter and an approachable person, who works well with all types of people. I also have the capacity to be a fast learner and I always give 150% of my determination and devotion to any task at hand.  I have a positive attitude when it comes to work and life because I believe that one should always display and personify an outgoing personality among others in order to work efficiently. At my last employment, I worked for over 3years for CM Robert Jackson until the end of his term which just ended on December 31, 2013 and although the demands of the job were extremely high, it was an fulfilling opportunity.   No matter how fast paced and overwhelming the day was I was able to get through it with my positive demeanor and doing all I can do to make Read more sure the elected official was fully informed and prepared at all times. As the oldest of 5 children and aunt to my 8yr old niece I have the patience and nuturing maternal qualities to care for children. I am very attentive, social and approachable when it comes to understanding kids bc I'm also s big kid at heart with a firm believer in balancing structure and fun.I feel its important to connect with children, interact with them letting them know that someone is there for them for guidance and to listen to their needs. My mother always taught me that while she was raising us. These days its important to be involved and see how the children are doing because the times are changing with technology involved and children becoming more grown and exposed to pop culture its important to connect and identify with them personally and get to know who they are growing up to be.  I take it more than just a job to clock in and clock out.  Its about building a foundation to establishing trust and a relationship with the family and knowing that you can count on me to be there no matter what. I have also taken care of my coworkers kids and I love to be active and take visits to museums and libraries.
