I grew up in a small town in MA with four siblings, and pursued a career in nursing as I felt this best fit my personality and wanted the challenge that nursing provided. I easily connect with people and am an optimistic person, always trying to find the positive in any situation, able to be realistic and honest with others. I find great pleasure caring for others and making their life easier. I am proud and thankful that I was able to provide care for our immediate family and now find, with a new move to Vermont, that I have the time and energy to continue this with friends and neighbors in our southern area of Vermont.

I have been working with people for most of my adult life. I have owned and operated my own preschool for 15 years. I have lived in Vermont for the past 11 years and I have worked in retail for most of those years. I have recently took a private care job with an elderly lady who is very capable of taking care of herself, I assist her with emails, grocery shopping, as well as driving her to and from appointments, etc. She is a delightful woman and I enjoy working with her so much. I have taken an interest in this field and would like to pursue further opportunities in working in this field. I am a very active person and I enjoy the outdoors very much, on my free time I am often outdoors either walking, hiking, snowshoeing, kayaking, and taking many different fitness classes at the local spa in town. I went back to college as an adult 5 years ago and received my bachelors degree which I am very proud of that accomplishment, as it was not an easy task working and going to school, however I really enjoyed it, and met many people and found my classes very interesting. I hope to continue taking courses over the next few years as I continue to pursue other side interests such as cooking, and photography.

I became a care giver when I was very young. I was blessed to have and know my great grandparents and grandparents. so as a little girl I began to take care of them because I loved them and because it came very natural to me. I loved the feeling of helping people and making them feel better and knowing that I made a difference. Just to know I helped them to be comfortable whether it was changing a bandage helping with medication making sure they got to a doctors appointment bathing them helping them with their p.a. just talking with them mostly listening (my fav) It never bothered me to sit with someone in their final days I knew they knew they were not alone. I have to say that doing these things are my personal achievements that I have done and want to continue to do. I have a huge heart and a tender touch and a lot of common sense . I'm funny and outgoing and love to bring my personal touch to ones life. I hope to continue to do my best and bring smiles and make everyone I take care of feel safe and secure. I'm a good communicator. I believe that being so makes things so much easier and helpful in everyway. I'm always open to change and to do better. I hope one day to be a recipient of what I have given to others.
