  About Me
I am a Canadian woman who has lived in Victoria for the last 28 years. I am a former ambulance attendant, practical nurse and journalist. For the last 27 years I have worked part time as a small business owner, and a care attendant for a woman with a severe brain injury, and I have volunteered for a provincial environmental organization and as a support worker at Our Place Society.

I have a mild disability from osteoarthritis, but this does not prevent me from enjoying play with my two grandchildren and taking care of them whenever I am asked.

  Work Experience & Education Background
7 years experience, 2 references
I have experience taking care of my two grandsons. I cook, play, sing and read to them I am good at bathing and changing. I am not in the least upset by poop explosions or being peed on.

My experience as a nurse has stood me in good stead throughout the years and has left me with endless patience. 
Childcare experience within the following age groups:
1 - 2 years, 5 - 10 years  
High School, College, CPR Training, C.N.A. Certification (Certified Nurse Assistant), First Aid Training, Occupational First Aid 
I graduated with an academic arts certificate. I first began first aid training at 21 and eventually began to teach Industrial First Aid (now known as Occupational First Aid). I trained at a Registered Nursing Assistant in Calgary at age 27 and worked at Foothills Hospital in neurology/neurosurgery in 1980/81 until my disability turned up. I then trained as a journalist at Langara Community College in Vancouver and worked at a journalist/editor/managing editor until 1991 when I retired early and moved to Victoria.
