  About Me
Helping people has always been a passion for me. I have worked with the very young, as well as the elderly. I know I can be an asset to you. A mother to 2 adult sons and a professional background of being a hairstylist for 41 years. Communication skills are key. I have had the opportunity to learn a lot about people. I look forward to discussing how I can contribute to your needs.

I am very kind, caring, trustworthy, reliable, responsible, highly organized and very creative. I am easygoing, yet I have very good common sense. Follow direction well, but can still take the lead when necessary.

I enjoy ballroom dancing, gardening, golf, walking, going to the beach, reading a good mystery novel if I have some spare time. Volunteering and giving back to the community is very important to me.

  Work Experience & Education Background
10 years experience, 3 references

I am very responsible, caring, organized, easygoing, upbeat person. I think having a sense of humor is very important. Getting older is not always easy, however our attitude and appoach to it can make things much more enjoyable. Going for a walk, conversations that are upbeat or just there to lend a supportive ear, driving to Dr. Appointments, going out for a tea or drive, doing some errands, organizing, light house keeping, shopping for clothes, drive you to family or friends for a visit doctors appointments. I am very capable of many tasks.

Over the past 2 years I was hired by a wonderful family 3 times a week to be a caregiver and champion to a lovely 82 year old lovely lady. I took her out shopping, sorted and organized all of her clothing. Did her hair ( Iíve been a hairdresser for 43 years as well).
We went for drives, I bought her special treats plants flowers etc. Unfortunately, she lives in a retirement home and because of Covid-19 thereís no visiting by family or caregivers companions. Itís very sad. We formed had a wonderful fun relationship. I still call a few times a week to see how sheís doing.

With the current situation with this virus, I am very strict about protocol to keep myself healthy and I bring many skills to all of my clients. Safety is Paramountly important.
