I have always Is had a passion for working with elderly and disabled patients and children who have special needs. My work throughout the years has been in both fields of working with children and seniors.

My experience of working in the medical field in OBGYN Has afforded me to have a good report with expecting mothers, being a liaison between the doctor and the patient, and establishing good professional relationships.

Now I'd like the opportunity to work with children via zoom so that I can help them benefit by being a positive force, as well as providing them with the confidence that they need in order to succeed in life.
