Karen’s Bio

I have office and customer service skills which have enhanced my awareness and resourcefulness after retirement. I have been a hotel concierge, an office manager, a vacuum salesperson and and a furniture idea coordinator over the years, gathering experience that I am now using to assist others, especially seniors for the past 7 years.

I have no training or certification but I have life lessons and street smarts, familiarity with hospitals, doctors, senior housing and rest homes, I understand, listen and console, enlighten and brighten whatever and wherever I can within the parameters of the services requested.

I can run errands, transport mobile clients, read to or provide stimulating conversation to shut ins.
I sew, scrapbook, design and make cards as well as beaded jewelry, and am pretty savvy with the computer.

My assistance is not limited to seniors, I just have more recent experience with them, but like helping children and people who may have need for assistance with projects or routine tasks.
