14+ years experience in senior care, both in the Greater Toronto Area and Queensland, Australia. I am passionate about caring for others, and I strive every day to improve myself and create a warm environment to live and work for others. I love the outdoors – camping and hiking. I also play and enjoy watching a variety of sports.

  • I really enjoy the activities here. I love to play scrabble, do crafts 
    and easy exercises. I love to go for walks everyday with my little 
    dog Maggie. Having Maggie with me has been very good for my

  • I would highly recommend Livita Retirement Residences As soon as you 
    enter Livita Retirement Residences, you will find yourself in a very 
    welcoming lobby. The recent renovations on the main floor, which include 
    a sitting area with a fireplace, as well as a bistro, are very inviting. The 
    apartments are spacious and well laid out. The best part of Livita 
    Retirement Residences is the staff! All of the staff, including housekeeping, kitchen, administration, and especially the PSW and nursing care staff have become like family. The attention to personal safety and well-being is highly apparent. During this uncertain time, I had full confidence in the goings on of Livita Retirement Residences.
