I love going on road trips. I will be driving on my own to the Maritimes in August. I have driven this trip solo many times over the years. My father was raised in New Brunswick.
My background of experience employment wise includes years of exceptional customer service in the hotel and restaurant industries. I was a Shiatsu Therapist for 10 years, an aesthetician for 5 years in which I used both of these skills to run and manage my own mobile spa business for 5 years.
After I sold my business I went back to school at George Brown College and graduated with honours in the Activation Coordinator/Gerontology program. I have worked at long term care homes, an adult day program centre and am currently working at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre at the Veterans Centre as an Activity Aide. I have many years of experience working with seniors. I am compassionate about helping out seniors, empathetic, reliable, a very careful and mindful driver. I have always gravitated towards being around the older adult population in whatever job I was doing. Even when I ran my own business, I volunteered my time doing manicures and pedicures at a retirement home.
My hobbies include swimming, working out, singing and anything to do with sports. However my favorite sports are baseball and basketball.
I do companion and caregiving work for a client who I also drive to doctors' appointments, hospital appointments, chemotherapy treatments and anywhere else she would like to go. I have been her companion for 12 years. I also was her Shiatsu Therapist for the previous 10 years. Therefore she has been my client for 22 years now.
