“I believe that we all take part in a caregiving world. Some have been caregivers. Some are currently caregivers. Some will be caregivers, and some will need a caregiver. Too often, we underestimate the power of the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to make a difference and turn a life around. In my position, I am given the opportunity to make a difference by creating a better understanding of what it takes to care for a loved one. The caregiving experience is a life-altering journey as individuals rise to challenges and reflect on the rewards. My goal is to identify, develop and share the work it will require, the skills needed, the amount of time and energy to be a caregiver. My professional aspiration is to give back to the community by positively impacting the caregiving profession.”
“I graduated nursing school with high honors, and I was also voted “Excellence in Leadership Award” by the students and faculty staff of Ambria College of Nursing in 2010. I was recognized for academic achievement awards, the Dean’s and President’s List within given semesters from 2018 to 2021 at Capella University. I am a nominated member of the National Society for Leadership and Success (NSLS). I am a proud Licensed Training Provider and volunteer with the American Red Cross. I am also an avid volunteer in various cancer charitable opportunities. I am a certified Virtual Dementia Tour Facilitator with Second Wind Dreams. And best of all, I am also a proud self-directed learner. I believe that knowledge workers succeed not based on what we know and rather on what we continue to learn. My self-taught successes include learning the virtual world and online community, such as social media, online and digital marketing, graphic design, print marketing documents, communication tools, presentation software, and database management.”
“I am a wife and proud parent responsible for caring for four beautiful boys. I am a real-life caregiver of my son, who is winning against cancer! I understand what it takes to be a caregiver for a loved one, and it takes all the help you can get. It is indeed a life-altering journey but can also be so rewarding.”
“Strong walls shake but never collapse.”
