  About Me
I live with my partner on Mississippi Lake. I enjoy outdoor activities such as walks, rollerblading, bike riding, picnics and camping to name a few. I love spending time with my family, especially with my nieces who are 4 and 8. I have recently moved to the Ottawa area and am seeking an opportunity to work frontline with children. I like to assist children with being as independent as possible while providing a fun, caring and therapeutic environment. I look forward to assisting a family with maintaining their household and helping out with their children.

This role encompassed assisting children with hygiene, meal preparation, house hold chores, transportation of youth, attending medical appointments, extra ciricular activites and so on. I have worked in a shelter for homeless youth where I assisted clients with obtaining housing and employment. I have extensive experience working with individuals with Autism, developmental delays and mental heath. I have experience in case management and meeting the individual and often complex needs of clients. I believe in providing clients with the knowledge of resources to enhance their ability to become self sufficient and to meet their goals. I have solid knowledge of community resources with the ability to ensure comprehensive service planning with clients as well as making appropriate referrals.

In my current role as a Residential Counselor and my previous role as a Supervisor of a residential program for special needs children, I have had the opportunity to work with a variety of diverse individuals, families and community partners. I have shown passion and enthusiasm about my work and clients, as well as dedication to my professional growth.
