I come from a small family and had to take care of my mother for many years until she passed away. In that I do have little family, in the work that I have done over the years, I treat the people I am in charge of like family. I have worked for Season's Hospice which was quite rewarding, as well as general private duty. Most recently I worked for the Archdiocese of Baltimore, caring for retired priests in a lovely retirement center, along with a few lay people that knew my work and know how much I care, within the building. I am an energetic, strong and healthy person, who is constantly told I look and act so much younger than my age (as per you will see in my photo), who cares greatly for the people I work for and treat them as I would wish to be treated...like family. I take my job seriously and treat people with great professional care and hope I will get the chance to prove it.

Related Interests & Hobbies
I very much enjoy exercise and a nutritional diet. I live healthy, look healthy and love to am very interested in learning more about vitamins and what helps to make one's life a more fulfilled and healthier/happier life. I also love to listen to music and watch artistic, etc. programs on the television, along with some old movies, etc. I am creative and enjoy decorating or putting the right clothes and colors together. I believe color makes for a happier environment. Keeping things organized and tidy are also some of my strong points. I feel that caring for people is very rewarding and helps me feel closer toward a better way of living with kindness and caring for one another. I also might mention I enjoy writing to perhaps one day write my own book? All in all I love people, I'm spiritual, and believe and hope I am making a difference in the world in my profession.
I hope I can help anyone who can use an upbeat encouraging person to make their life a happier less "painful" life to please keep me in mind in that I am totally dedicated to making us all live a fuller and better life for as long as we can.
