About Valerie

Hi my name is Valerie. I have a degree in social work and have always loved people , whether it is children or the elderly. I have always been a patient person and try to see situations from the client's perspective, as I would want someone to do for me. I find helping people very rewarding. I have been doing it most of my life, between raising my children, having a daycare and taking care of the elderly. I find communication is important, as well as listening and trying to accommodate the person you are there for.
