Heidi Jones received her CNA certification in 2003 and hasn’t looked back.
Jones, a CNA (certified nursing assistant) at Matrix Home Health Care Specialists in Minneapolis, Minnesota, has worked in private in-home care for 14 years.
Jones enjoys the accomplishment she feels at the end of the day knowing she has made someone’s life easier. “I like older people, I really do. I love history, I like hearing the stories from seniors, and then it was part of my life.”
Not everyone can be a CNA, says Jones, but the challenging and rewarding profession suits her well. “It’s helped me to know what to expect, to be prepared, to not be afraid.”
