Tell us about yourself: I moved to Canada 5 years ago. This was my first job in Canada. I was very lucky to find ILCWR. It is a good match for me!

What I enjoy most about being an Attendant:  I like that there is social and physical work. It is a good balance.

If I wasn’t an Attendant…I would like to be living in a little cabin in the woods.

What advice would you have for potential or new Attendants? Enjoy your job and enjoy each person you work with.
