I’m so proud to work in healthcare!!!

I have worked in the healthcare field for about 12 years in various roles, each position having its own set of rewards and challenges. One of my favorite things is knowing that I get to actually help change the lives of others. The connection I have with patients and families is so rewarding. I also love that I’m surrounded by likeminded people who I can learn from!

Who else is in the industry? What is your favorite part about it?

I get satisfaction out of helping people and letting the patients know that I care about them. I had a few patients that kept in touch with me after they were discharged from the hospital and that was always rewarding. The thank-you notes I got from patient families were worth their weight in gold. I have 26 years of experience as a certified occupational therapy assistant. I am sad to say though, that this field no longer supports me in a sustainable, survivable way and I cannot even afford health insurance. Often not even gas to get to the patients' house doing home health. Be very grateful you live in a progressive state like California instead of Texas.
