About Linda

I am a retired Paramedic and am looking for part time work. I love to learn new things. I care about people and have empathy for others. I have been a caregiver most of my life. I raised three children. I am good at multi-tasking. I took care of several elderly relatives. I am a good listener and like talking to people. I am proud that I have overcome all the fears in my life and that I completed a career in Emergency Medical Services.
