Elder care in Bowmanville, Ontario

I have several years’ experience working both as a nanny and as a residential counsellor in a group home setting. I enjoy doing a wide variety of hobbies including hiking, roller blading, and cooking. One of my biggest achievements is losing over one hundred pounds in the last 2 years. I accomplished this by changing my life style and eating habits. I feel very healthy and extremely proud of my will power and determination. I am extremely active, fun, and energetic with a great sense of humor. I just want to thank you for taking the time to review my profile and look forward to speaking you soon. I also have over 8 years of Nursing Home experience working with an individual with multiple sclerosis.
