I am a recent graduate of a pre-social work degree with an emphasis in child and youth work. I have recently relocated to Montreal from BC and I am looking for work that allows me to connect with children and youth while utilizing my nurturing, responsible, and fun-loving qualities! In my spare time, I love to ride bikes, spend time in nature, make crafts (especially sewing and embroidery!), cook, and learn. I am hoping to find employment opportunity where I can form a positive, long-term relationship with a family.
