About Robin

I have become very interested in the elder care in the past 4 years through Masters Level studies at St. Michael's college and additional certifications and trainings in the industry. I have recently completed the "Start the Conversation" facilitators training at the Visiting Nurses Association and will be attending the PCA certification course at the end of this month. I am inspired by Zalman Schachter-Shalomi's work in Spiritual Eldering presented in his book, From Aging to Sage-ing, A Profound New vision of Growing Older. Last night I attended Stephen Kiernans' presentation "Changing the Face of Dying" sponsored by the VNA and Vermont's Madison Dean Initiative. you will see from my resume my increasing credentials in the field and my personal motivation to excel. I am most proud of my decision to leave corporate america as a manufacturer's sales rep and focus my energy in the areas where I am most passionate. Though I am relatively new to elder care, I am not new to human care. I am a mother, yoga instructor, substitute teacher and waitress.

    I have several years of experience as a personal care attendant, mostly for the elderly. I have worked in a facility, as well as provided in-home care both privately and through an agency. I have a lot of experience with all stages of dementia. I really enjoy this kind of work, and find it very meaningful. I love being helpful, love supporting vulnerable populations, and I love working with the elderly. I love to listen to people's stories, learning about who they are, hearing the wisdom they've gained throughout their lives and being there to make their lives a little easier. I have worked in the medical field for over a decade. My medical experience has been very useful in my role as a care provider. I also have experience helping others in a supportive, understanding, and compassionate way in my holistic healing work that I also do (Reiki, bodywork and aromatherapy), another role that I absolutely love. I love animals of all kinds, and have also done pet-care in the past, working for myself - everything from the big creatures like horses to the very small ones, like birds.
