  About Me

I am a 28 year old female who resides in the greater victoria area with my husband and two dogs. I have completed a Community, Family and Child Studies Diploma from Camosun College. In addition to this, I have my Bachelors Degree in Child and Youth Care at Uvic and have specialized in Child Protection. My practicums in this field have included working as a support worker for youth with different abilities; outreach work for mental health and addictions; a Social Worker for Adult Probation; and Child Protection for the Ministry of Child and Families.

I have always had a passion for helping individuals. Whether it be families, individuals with developmental disabilities, or children and youth; I truly have a passion for it.

When I am not working, I love keeping busy outdoors. I enjoy hiking with my dogs and husband, or being anywhere near the beach- we are truly lucky to be surrounded by such beauty. Some of my hobbies include painting and drawing, going for walks with my family, working out, exploring the cities many restaurants, and spending quality time with friends.

I am a fun loving, empathetic individual who has a great imagination and loves children. I am a fast learner and am very respectful and flexible to the needs of the parents and children. I pride myself in confidentiality and uphold the most respect for the families I work for. I have several years working with families and children, and am looking for a long term, permanent career working with a family who is looking for long term stability and high end care for their child's life.

If you have further questions about my schooling, references or experience please feel free to connect with me.
