Hello! I live in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. I have most recently worked as a Care Aide for the elderly, and had my own small homecare business. However, I had the opportunity to visit Kenya this year for 7 months, and really enjoyed it; I am returning there for December 2018. I hope to find a rewarding Workaway placement where I can be of service, most likely with children or older people. My past work experience includes 10 years working in a hospital as a Respiratory Therapist. I am happy to help cook, clean, and generally pitch in as needed. I look forward to meeting you!
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Helping with Tourists
I am trained and certified in helping people with activities of daily living (dressing, bathing, using the toilet, eating, etc.) I love to play with and interact with children, and feel I have a talent for this. Before this career, I worked in Intensive Care in a Vancouver hospital, and am comfortable with first aid, CPR, etc.
My last Workaway experience was providing homework help/English tutoring for an Italian family, and it was a very positive experience.
I worked in customer service previous to healthcare, and have a passion for helping customers in a friendly and efficient manner. During college, I worked as a hotel chambermaid for several years, and know how to clean!
I am good in medical emergencies!
English, basic Spanish, French and Swahili
I love the concept of Workaway, since I am a keen traveler, but have limited interest in sightseeing trips. It is so valuable to experience a new place by living in the same spot for some time, and getting to know the people and surroundings more thoroughly.
