Profile

I am a dedicated and reliable worker who is positive, self-motivated and respectful, seeking to provide the kind of support that is meaningful and beneficial to people with disability and their families.
Leadership, responsibility, flexibility, patience and motivation have been the drivers for my ability to connect and build excellent rapport with people on a short and long-term basis.
My ability to work in a culturally diverse environment has been the foundation for pursuing diverse personal interests such as carpentry, metal work, rock climbing, camping, martial arts, audio books, science documentaries, learning all aspects of health and nutrition, art and crafts, gardening, surfing, kayaking, fishing and gaming.
