Dena’s Bio

My name is Dena and I'm looking to do what I enjoy most which is to help others. I've worked in healthcare in Radiology for 26 years and would like to unwind from that career. I'm 51 years old and have 3 children, 1 step son, 3 cats and a Golden Retriever that make up my world. My oldest is headed off to UC Davis and the other are independent in their own personal needs. I live in Carlsbad CA. My husband works from home full time. I don't smoke and consider myself pretty active working out in our home gym and running our dog. I'd love to help you with your needs. I'm never late (usually a tad early) and a very responsible adult. I used to use Sittercity for childcare and I know exactly what the expectations can be.

Thank you, Dena Truhn
