I am originally from Bontoc Mountain Province, Philippines. A graduate of Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy. Left the country in 2003 and worked overseas. My first experience working with elderly was when I gained a position as a Mobility Therapist in one of the aged care facilities in New Zealand.

After few years, I have decided to pursue my dream of changing career and explore elderly care further. Becoming a Registered nurse is one of them. I was granted scholarship by the Sisters of Mercy to go to university and gain my degree in Bachelor of nursing in Auckland, New Zealand. Since then, the career opportunities in aged care was unstoppable. I have been working now in aged care for more than 12 years and I love every bit of it.
