2013 Family Helper of the Year
Elizabeth came to the U.S. at the age of 22, from Trinidad, where she was born and raised. Elizabeth is a natural caregiver and she has always had a passion for working with children. She has given 100% of herself to the families she works with. She has been working professionally with children since 1995.
Elizabeth feels blessed that her current family has welcomed her into their home with open arms and is so very happy to be a part of their daughter’s life. It gives Elizabeth great pleasure to see the big smile on her charge’s face when she arrives to work in the morning. Elizabeth has been working with her current family for one year, but hopes to remain in this position for many more years.
Elizabeth’s current employer, Mrs. R., describes Elizabeth (Lizzy) as kind, patient, fun, warm and so loving to our daughter.
“Lizzy has boundless energy!” “She is constantly teaching our daughter and helping her to meet new friends. She takes her to classes and on fun outings.”
“She has played a significant role in raising our daughter to be the smart, happy and curious toddler that she is.”
“Lizzy has become a very important part of our family.” “We are so thankful for Lizzy every day!”
