  About Me
 
I am English speaking my ancestors are from England, Germany, Ireland, and Scotland. I have worked with seniors most of my life since my 20s as a dietary aide, pharmacy tech, and a companion. I like to cook, show people around town and drive. I have an older dog cocker spaniel which loves to walk and take for a drive. I looked after my mom with Dementia from 2009 to 2013 after my Dad passed of cancer. I have raised 2 wonderful children on my own that are now young adults at the same time I looked after and cooked for my parents since the early 2000s. When I had a home I used to do all the gardening. I do like to shop and garden with others or on my own. I play golf on occasion and the saxophone. I also like to sing and listen to music.

Karen Thomas 
I was Karen's parent's companion for the year 2016 while I worked for another agency I took them out to appointments, grocery shopping, scenic drives and whatever they wanted to do eg music in the park. I really enjoyed spending time with them and when I was there a companion. But I actually met Karen in junior high till she moved. I am friends with them all still to this day.
