I enjoy cooking and can make almost any type of food. I also enjoy fiber crafts (knitting, crochet). I like to keep up on current trends and also the news.
I am usually a very upbeat person, every cloud has a silver lining. I believe I have a strong work ethic. The job isn't finished until it is finished. 5 extra minutes is better addressed today instead of leaving it for tomorrow. I worked in a hospital for 10 years as a secretary, but regularly I was asked to assist the nurses, or just sit with patients who needed to have a physical presence with them for safety, or sometimes just companionship. I always enjoyed my time with these patients.

Initially when I started working, I was in restaurant work. After Highschool, I became a secretary and eventually an administrative assistant. Then I was fortunate enough to become a mother to 7 beautiful children. Based on where we lived, I ended up homeschooling the children for about 10 years.
