Hi, I am 51 years old, have two children(both grown) and have spent my life in the "making people happy" line of work. I had my first job at the age of 12. I was a counselor/instructor for special kids. I learned more over that summer then I had ever imagined possible. If 12 sounds young... it was. I was a ward of the State(New York). My father died 3 years earlier and my mom..... was crazy. We moved 16 times in one year... thats when Welfare stepped in..... This backround info is only relevent or the purpose of understanding. It was hard, scary and often made me feel "beaten-down". moment one of camp ... BAM!! I knew, understood that I didn't have it so bad..... I had the ability to make my life whatever I wanted to make it......... the kids in my group had the motto " my glass is half FULL, NOT half empty". I finshed high school, went to college, served in the Army ... I beat the odds... I have always treated others as I would want to be treated. fairly, non-judging, encouraging..... because that is how( from the very first minute) my group of kids had treated me. I was a certified nurses aide in New York. I have experience working with individuals suffering from dementia. Both in my professional and personal life. I am confident that I will be an asset to you.
