I would consider myself a Care Companion because I love helping others. I think it is important to "companion" people along their journeys in life. Life at times can be difficult and sometimes all it takes to "move a person along" in the right direction - is knowing someone is there by their side.
I am a Certified (trained) Life Coach. A Life Coach is someone who is not an expert, not a therapist or a counselor. But instead is a person's "cheerleader" - someone who "comes up alongside" another and helps them on their life's journey.
I was a Teacher's Assistant for students with special-needs for over 4 years. After this career, I was the Director of 2 Religious Education Programs for over 6 years within the Catholic Church - where I was responsible for guiding and directing over 500 school children in Grades K-8. I also directed over 100 Adult and Teenager volunteers.
I also tutored and assisted other students thru Care.com. I am now caring for my elderly mother at home. For a short time in 2017 I was an Activities Aide in a Nursing Home. I've baby-sat for family members over the years. I've done a lot of volunteer work teaching Catholic Religious Education classes, computer and art classes and in various other situations.
