I am of Portuguese descent, but I was born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa. I am married for 32 years and have two sons. My youngest son is in Florida USA, and my eldest son stays with his dad in South Africa. I love cats and dogs. I come from a close-knit Christian family with strong moral values. I try to go home to South Africa at least twice a year. I am outgoing and social, but I do also enjoy some quiet time. I am honest, dependable, and respectful; have lots of patience and understanding. I make my clients feel safe and comfortable. I treat my clients the way I would like my grandmother and mother to be treated.
