I worked as a Neuro-rehab nurse at the Foothills Hospital for 10 years before having my 3 children. While my kids were young I co-founded and ran an event management business. During that time I also started an at home bakery business which I still do part time. Now that my kids are older I’ve decided to go back to my roots of rehabilitation and caring for others outside my home. I enjoy seeing the progress of people as they go threw their rehab process. In my spare time (if I have any) I enjoy camping, spending time with family and friends and baking something new in the kitchen.
