(In her own words...)
"I have been working with the homeless population for almost ten years. I have also worked with families, children and youth.
However, my passion is to work with those who are experiencing and suffering from addictions and mental health issues. Although my job has its moments that are gratifying, there are times when it can be thankless.
As a compassionate driven person who is always looking for new opportunities to learn and gain new skills in the "helping profession" I was very intrigued when my friend Laurie told me she joined the Toronto Head Lice Removal team. She would talk about the nice families she would meet and how they would tell her how grateful they are for her support and I thought this sounded pretty rewarding.
In my profession it is essential to have fundamental core skills, which include being compassionate, non-judgmental and observant. I am confident that all these skills would help folks feel more comfortable during a treatment."
