I would like to say how much I like working with Spuzzum First Nations as your Home Community Care Aide and CHR. I am from Lytton BC and belong to the Lytton First Nations Band.

Before entering the career as a BC reg. Care Aide I worked as a dietary aide and house keeper for Fraser Canyon Hospital for 2 years.

I graduated from NVIT Nicola Valley Institute of technology, in November 2011. As a Health Care Aide. I did my practicum in many facilities in the lower mainland and later after graduation worked in the Hope Fraser Cascade Hospital in the lodge for the elderly.

In September 2012 I was hired as a Home Community Care Aide for FTISS that’s Fraser Thompson Indian Services Society, I am enjoying working with the Fraser canyon elders and learning traditional ways of our people. I have been taking on many hats through my training with FTISS and one of my rolls is the CHR for Spuzzum first Nation.

So far I have applied for many grants throughout the years and hosted many events for Spuzzum. The biggest grant I applied for was the Elders grant from NRT to go to the annual elder’s conference in Victoria Saanich BC. The elders loved there trip, The most recent event the elders participated was the Quaaout Lodge in Kootney area. They had a blast.

In closing I would like to thank all of Spuzzum Community for participating in the events I hosted in the past.
Thank you.
