Job purpose:

To assist me in all aspects of my daily living, to provide a high standard of care and support, working as part of a team of PAs.

About me:

I have a really big personality and love to have a good chat and laugh. I have a close family, I live with my husband, three children, and two dalmations.

I enjoy watching TV/DVD’s and listening to music. I have a creative nature and enjoy arts and crafts. I enjoy creating and making cards for all occasions. In the kitchen I very much like to be involved with the family meals, and the preparation of them.
