I am the Team Leader for the support staff at The Life Balance. For those who have not yet meet me in person, you have likely heard me doing my job from behind the backyard fence. I have incredibly empathetic listening skills, health boundaries that I efficiently enforce (with visitors from behind windows, doors and fences). I am gentle and caring with the small and meek (i.e. our chickens, cats & children). I am a steady and calming presence for the staff and am always offering hugs and cuddles to whoever needs it the most. When I am not busy working, I enjoy spending time on long walks in the forest or meditating on my chesterfield.
I am the junior support worker. I am new to the role of supporting The Life Balance Therapists, having joined the team 6 months ago. Despite making many mistakes (i.e. peeing on the floor & chewing on furniture) the The Life Balance staff have been very patient in teaching me how to be my best self. I look forward to many years working with this small but powerful counselling company. When I am not working, I enjoying chewing on toys, annoying The Life Balance felines, wrestling with my friends at the BX dog park and chasing my own tail.
I am the Office Manager in charge of reception and security. I am truely excited every time I get the privilege of welcoming a client at the The Life Balance entrance or gardens. I pride myself on my friendly outgoing personality. In addition to welcoming guests, it is my job to ensure that the entire facility is mice, spider and insect free. My team consists of two other felines and four chickens. We guarantee you will be meet with friendly purrs, clucks and meows each and every time you come for a visit. In my spare time I can be found greeting visitors (whether they like it or not) to Lakeview park where I lead tours of the beautiful pool, baseball diamonds and green spaces.
I am part of the support staff. Because of my shy nature, I prefer to focus my time and energy on the interior of the facility. I pride myself on the fact that while you may never see me, my efforts can be found everywhere. When I am not busy ensuring that cleaning, cooking of staff lunches and restocking of client beverages are being done, I can be found under the blankets of beds, chesterfields or chairs throughout the facility.
