About Tammy

I have a passion for working with the elderly and disabled community. I have been blessed with a caring, sensitive and empathic nature and enjoy helping and serving others. I am friendly and compassionate, and a positive, enthusiastic attitude is an important part of my life. I teach meditation and am studying hypnotherapy, and I understand the need for a positive mental attitude in all areas. I enjoy providing others with the care they need to be able to enjoy their own lives to the fullest. I have cared for my daughter who was chronically ill for several years and would like to use that experience to improve the lives of another family or individual. Let's meet and find out if i can make a difference for you!
