I love my Grandparents so much and I was fortunate to have all four of them play an integral part of my life. However, it was my relationship with my Grandfather, on my dad’s side, that changed my life forever. He was such a loving and genuine man and there wasn’t a day that went by that he didn’t teach me something. Unfortunately, in 2001 my Grandfather suffered a massive heart attack which caused Hemiplegia (paralysis of one part of the body) which in his case is on his Left side. For the last 4 years of his life, he was bed bound and I had the pleasure of taking care of him everyday. We had many talks, but none more influential than the day I decided I wanted to become a nurse. I had already graduated with my Bachelors degree in Business, Banking, but I knew I was going back to school to get my Bachelors degree in Nursing.
A short 3 1/2 years later that dream became a reality. In 2010, I came to the United States to join my parents and start my American dream. Needing to start working right away to help my family, I became a Caregiver at an assisted living community. Over the following years, I enjoyed several different roles in healthcare and while I enjoyed working with patients, I really missed working with Seniors. That is when Lightyear Health called me and my life again changed forever. Every time I am caring for one of our senior patients, I always remember my Grandfather.
As the Lead Medical Assistant and a Hiring Manager for Medical Assistants, I make sure my team and I are providing the same level of care and compassion, that I provided for my grandfather during his last 4 years of life, to every one of our patients. I am so grateful and honored to lead a team that has such wonderful, caring and compassionate people.
After 7 years of working in banking and government offices, I decided to go back to school and pursue a second Bachelors degree in Nursing. In 2010, I came to the United States to further pursue my dreams. Over the last 10 years, I’ve focused on providing quality care to improve the quality of life of each patient that I see.
Outside of work, my family is my world! I am the mom to 3 fur babies and have two nephews that light up my life. Last but not least, I am married to my wonderful husband who is my rock. We love to spend time with our dogs and travel.
