I am retired after a number of varied career pursuits, which included teacher, business entrepreneur, and administrative assistant. I have provided a year of care to an artist in her mid-30's who experienced severe, disabling anxiety which prevented her leaving home and requires light housekeeping, meal prep, errands, etc as needed. When her spouse began working from home due to COVID-19, I provided companion care to a client with macular degeneration, who had lost her husband. I recently chose to leave this position due to the client's disregard of COVID Safety guidelines, which were placing both of us at risk. My goal is to provide care and companionship with compassion.
