  About Me
I am a mom of three children and 5 animals. My children are mostly grown and on their own. I recently went back to school to become a PSW and loved the work. I wanted to learn more so became an RPN. I have a degree in Psychology with ECE that I utilized years ago before having children of my own. I have always had an interest in health and wellness. Having my children at home with a midwife, I became very interested in the life cycle and the idea that we are all connected and the question of, ' what is a life well lived'? I have an interest in working in palliative care, which I do very often. I am passionate about helping seniors live their fullest life. We often ignore or minimize the importance of the presence of seniors in Western society. I believe all beings are worthy of living their best life until their last breath.
I love animals, nature, cooking, baking, reading, learning new skills and plan to become an RN in the future.
I was raised with music, dance, skating and skiing as my active pursuits and feel best when I can hike every day with my beautiful Labrador Retriever.

  Work Experience & Education Background
4 years experience, 3 references
I worked in Home care for several years before becoming an RPN. I worked full-time, half of it visiting clients in retirement homes, and half of it visiting clients in their homes. Most of my clients were palliative; palliative care is end of life care but it is also caring for those with life-limiting illness and disease i. e. Multiple Sclerosis.
I am a nurse who works in Community Care as well as visiting clients in their own homes.
