I'm a single Mother & I do volunteer work within my Community through my son's school & other areas. I have a generous, giving heart. I love working with people of all ages, but having been raised by my blind & elderly maternal Grandmother while my Mother was sick, I learned to be a caring, sensitive person with immense patience for those in need. I am capable of great compassion and I abhor anything that would allow mistreatment or cruelty to the elderly, children or to anyone at all. I have always taken care of people, first my Mother, then my Grandmother, then my Mother again until she passed away 4 years ago. All the while, I cared for my ex-husband & my two children, one of which is now an adult. I am proud that my children are also caring, loving people. In addition, I'm proud that I continue to take care of people not just physically, but now with my Catering Business because I promote healthy eating & exercise for all ages. I'm versatile & easygoing, but strong in mind, body & spirit. I would love the opportunity to make a difference & make it a bit easier on a family when it comes to their elderly loved ones when they cannot be there for them themselves, but knowing that there is someone that they can trust & believe in to take care of things in their absence.
