I work with seniors in a group of three Special Care Homes, as the nurse manager. I have worked with seniors for the last 16 or so years in the community and assisted living residences.
I have been married to my best friend, Lonnie, for 32+ years, and together we have two adult sons, Sean and Jeremy and a grand daughter, Mia, who keeps us all on our toes even though she lives in Montreal.
I have always loved creating with my hands especially with needle and thread and more recently with papercrafts. I love the diversity of it all.
I signed up as a hobby demo with Stampin' Up in February/March of 2009 during Salebration. I really love the quality of the products.
