About Amy

I have dedicated my career to social work and helping others. I am outgoing and use humor often. I am flexible and rarely get over excited about conflicts or people raising their voice. I have a calming voice tone and am an active listener. I am creative and like to do all sorts of crafts or coloring. I find it's a good stress relief. I help care for an elderly couple now which I do as volunteer work since they are like family. I find the addition of cleaning, organizing, and being a companion very rewarding. I enjoy seeing that I have made a difference and have been able to make someone smile. I am proud of the success stories that I have been lucky to be part of over the years. I am fortunate that some of the families who have had success maintain contact with from time to time in addition to sending pictured. This is just priceless.
