I was born in Souris and grew up in Elmira. I have four children and nine beautiful grandchildren. Seeing Home Instead grow over the years warms my heart in knowing all the seniors whose lives are made easier by our services. I am proud of our CAREGivers, and believe they become like family to our clients and to us. I believe the most important thing in life is...family!​

I am thrilled to be practicing as a Registered Social Worker for Home Instead. My background includes 15 years with the Department of Justice and five years in Child Welfare. I also lived with a lady who suffered with Alzheimer's disease for four years and have worked within long term care. My clients, families and CAREGiver's have generated so much positive energy for me. I believe my colleagues and employer share in my philosophy. By educating seniors and their families we can help them make informed decisions and respect wishes. This feeds my passion.

I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to work with some exceptional people (both clients and colleagues) at Home Instead. Dividing my time between caregiving, and hiring and training caregivers is a great balance. Although my background is in Education, when it came time for a career change I wanted to make a difference to seniors who have contributed so much to our Island way of life. I've found though that we are the ones who benefit from time spent with them. Their life experiences, insights and wisdom are valuable resources. When I'm not working, reading, gardening, and spending time with my family (especially playing hockey and hide-and-go seek with my two grandsons) are among my favorite things to do.​

Photography has been a life long hobby of mine, I enjoy capturing the beauty of this Island. I have a true passion for helping others and enjoy making connections with people that last a lifetime.
