Kristi Thilges, CNA
I have worked for JourneyCare for two years as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), I am also a certified Phlebotomist. My goal before JourneyCare was to continue school and move on to become a Nurse.
My plans changed when I became a hospice CNA. I fell in love with it. I came home one day and explained to my husband that this is where I should be. I let him know that I no longer wished to continue school. He was surprised at first, but told me to follow my heart and that is what I’m doing.
I believe that you have to love what you do - you can’t be good at anything unless you love it. I wake up everyday before work knowing that I’m going to put my whole heart into every patient I care for. I love everything that comes with being a CNA. I cannot see myself doing anything else, I love what I do.
