Certified Hospice and Palliative Care Technician

WHY I LOVE WHAT I DO: Meeting families and pets in the relaxed setting of their home helps me see them as they truly are; a side of them that’s not possible elsewhere. Every day brings me such peace and joy, and with every visit, I know that I’m able to help the pet and the family that loves them. I’m constantly grateful to be doing what I truly love.

FAVORITE WAY TO START THE DAY: My favorite start to my day would involve coffee and breakfast beside a lake in the wilderness. Since that isn't a daily occurrence, I love waking up with my two dogs and cat, then a brisk walk with the pups, then coffee!

FAVORITE QUOTE: “Just reach right down into the whole of life: all of us live it, not many of us know it, and wherever you get hold of it, it’s interesting. A little light and lots of colour, much error and a spark of truth."
