What did you want to be as a kid, and how did you ultimately choose your career/job?

I wanted to be a basketball player; after I had a big growth spurt, I was a power forward. But as I got older, I focused more on school. I like to talk to people and help them, and I really enjoy being part of a team. When I visit patients, I try to make them feel a little better and brighten their day. Sometimes I pray for them.

What is a typical workday like?

I'm a host, so I deliver trays to patients, making sure they get the right meals – usually 70 or more each day. We have a lot of hungry people! I also like to help out between deliveries, washing dishes and trays.

What is the biggest challenge of your work?

I haven't really faced any challenges yet. The hardest part for me is when I bring comfort carts to visitors whose family member has passed.

What do you like most about your job?

I really enjoy getting to know people while I'm delivering their meals. I ask  how their day is going and just interact with them.

What do you do when you're not at work?

I have a 9-month-old daughter, so she takes up most of my free time. I also help my grandmother around the house.
