I’m a nanny because I love children of all abilities and my life's work is in the helping, education and care-giving professions.
My past childcare experience I have been in the care-giving, education and helping professions for over 20 years and I love being in service to children of all abilities, especially to those with special needs. I am a champion for the plight of transcending obstacles and reaching one's full potential In Canada, I earned a diploma in Special Education and a degree in Counseling Psychology. I worked in special education for over 15 years (initially as a student support worker and then as a special needs instructor/program planner). For many years, I also worked privately doing respite care and specialized tutoring. In Canada, I had my own counseling practice as a Registered Professional Counselor and now, in Los Angeles, I have a part-time life coaching business. I have had the honor to work with the whole spectrum of children with disabilities ranging from children with autism, Down Syndrome, global developmental delay, cerebral palsy to ADHD, ODD and psycho-emotional challenges (just to name a few). As a special educator, caregiver, counselor and coach, I focus in on the inner worlds of clients and aim to discover the resilient spirit within that is the catalyst to overcome barriers and fully thrive.
