Caregiver for relative (Former Employee) – Janesville, WI – January 7, 2017
I took care of my grandmother, who is suffering from Alzheimers. It started off easy, but, after a few years, her ability to do simple tasks had deteriorated until she was unable to do much on her own. She eventually was moved into a Nursing Home, where they were better equipped to handle people like her.

Communication PR Intern (Current Employee) – Southington, CT – January 22, 2016
I normally go in and talk to my supervisor to see what she has for me to do for the day. That can range from emailing companies to get quotes or information in general to having things mailed out. The day depends upon the work given. I have learned more about word and excel considering I am using it on a much more regular basis. The management is good. My boss is welcoming and helps me when needed as well as the co-workers. It is a friendly environment where everyone is willing to help one another. The hardest part of the job is sometimes not having any assignments to complete so it makes the work day rather unproductive. I really enjoy communicated with not only those I work with but those from other companies and when I get work completed, I feel accomplished and successful.
I loved my job. I became very attached to my patient. The hardest part of my job was having to physically left and pick up my patient, and feeding her. My overall experience, was very fun and a very maturing environment.
