HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A CNA?Professionally, I have been a CNA for a little over four years.
WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO BECOME AN CNA?I was motivated to become a caregiver after caring for and spending time with my grandma, enjoying meals together, and sharing memorable moments with her. It means the world to me. ❤
WHAT ASPECT OF YOUR JOB ARE YOU MOST PASSIONATE ABOUT?I am passionate about everything. I love connecting with people 😊. We all need someone when times get hard. It’s wonderful to have a laugh and share stories. I feel privileged being able to help people, and I will carry the life lessons I’ve gained through caregiving in every new chapter.
I always make sure to give my clients what they need. I like to check in with them in the beginning of my shift, see how they’re doing, hear about any goals they have for the day, and do anything extra if needed to prioritize their wellbeing.
HOW ARE YOU MAKING MORE POSSIBLE FOR YOUR BRIGHTSTAR CLIENTS?
WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR OTHER CNA?Bring your respect and compassion everywhere you go. Also, go into each day with an open mind and an open heart, because you never know how much joy you can bring into someone’s life.
TELL US YOUR FAVORITE CNA MOMENT/STORYWhen COVID-19 hit, and so many things were closed down, I found myself becoming more adaptable on the job. I had just groomed a client's dog for her, and she was thrilled! She told me that I was her rainbow. Ever since then, I’ve identified as a rainbow.
HOW DO YOU RE-ENERGIZE?First off, I maintain a healthy lifestyle, through a good diet and regular gym visits. Not only is it important for me to prioritize health for my body, but my mind as well. I re-energize by “unplugging” myself from technology for a while, going for a hike or walking out in nature, and spending time with my dogs at the beach.
A FEW WORDS ABOUT BREANNA FROM AN APPRECIATIVE CLIENT:“Breanna has been an extremely reliable, very personable supportive caregiver to my 93-year-old mother for probably well over a year. Caregiving is all about matching personalities and needs and Breanna has a lot of skills that are extremely supportive for a person of an advanced age. Her caring voice and ability to turn on a dime when expectations or needs change and her hallmarks. She is deserving of being an employee of the month” - Andy K
