What brought you to RVNA?
A friend of mine worked at RVNA and he told me how nice a company it was to work for. And he was certainly right.
What is your role at RVNA?
I work as a home health aide.
How long have you worked at RVNA?
I have been working at RVNA for 10 years.
What is your favorite part of your job?
My favorite part of the job is seeing a client improve and me being part of it, and also helping them with their ADL (activities of daily living). This means a lot to me.
Did you ever consider a field other than healthcare?
No. I always knew I wanted a job where I helped people. It’s very rewarding to me.
What do you love to do when you’re not working?
I love to travel. I just got back from Dublin, Ireland and I really had a great time. I can’t wait to travel more.

I know how to dance salsa. Dancing is a big part of Colombian life and I spent my childhood dancing.

I would travel the world and open an animal sanctuary for animals in need.

It’s a special moment every time I return from vacation and my clients tell me how much they missed me. I really feel that I am making a difference in their life.
