  About Me
 
I am a fourth year social work student with a minor in women’s and gender studies. I come from a small town called Napanee. I was raised in a big, loving and supportive family with three older sisters who are now married and have sons. My nephews are very important to me, whenever I go home the majority of my time is spent with them and the rest of my family. My hobbies include reading and biking and my favorite TV show is Grey’s Anatomy. I have extensive experience looking after youth starting with The Greater Napanee Gymnastics Club as a Coach and Camp Counsellor, The Ottawa Boys and Girls Club as well as babysitting my young nephews since they were born. I am very strong and comfortable working with children and families. Personally I am a responsible, caring and a professional individual who understands the importance and joys of looking after children. I hope you will give me the opportunity to discuss this very important position more.
