Our People

 
Our people are bondable and are covered by WCB and liability insurance.  We are qualified, mature, responsible individuals who come from various career backgrounds.  We take pride in providing top-notch care for our clients whether they need care for themselves or their loved ones.  We believe in the power of  'word of mouth' advertizing.  If you're happy you will tell someone, if you're not... you will probably tell lots of people. Here are some of our staff... others are a little 'camera shy'.


I am Dini, mom to 2 daughters, and "Seanni" to 2 sweet little boys named Jack & Arlo.  I was born in Chemainus & have been an 'island girl' all of my life.  I enjoy being creative, writing, cooking, dancing, digging in the dirt and hanging out with family & friends.   
     My main career, for over 20 years, was in child care - I did everything from family child care, preschool, group day care, consulting, working with families with children with special needs, respite care.... and teaching.  It was wonderful.  I have also been involved in the food industry on and off for years doing prep cooking, serving and catering.  My needs for a creative outlet were met in teaching art to children and being involved with a couple of galleries in Qualicum Beach.  I learned many skills by being the general contractor for the building of my home. I have at times been an employee, but mostly been self-employed and enjoy the challenge of running my own business and using my skills to help others in theirs.  I am the owner of Seren and am excited about helping people take care of themselves and their homes. 
  

Hello, I'm Tracy.  Born and raised in Calgary, I made Qualicum Beach my home five years ago.  With a passion for creating order out of chaos, I thrive on jobs well done.  I have an ongoing love affair with technology, a fondness for plants and getting lost in gardens, and I really don't mind the rain.  I enjoy meeting and getting to know people, and dogs... and cats.  I love a sense of humour, a beautiful Pinot Gris and time well spent with family and friends.
 








 




 

Lawanna and her husband did house-sitting for several years for a local family before deciding to move here permanently from Manitoba a few years ago.  They now live in Parksville and love it.  The only reason to leave the island is to get together with family, especially if it involves visiting her 3 great-grandchildren!  Lawanna has an extensive background in administration and working with people. She joined Seren Home Support Services in 2011, and we and her clients are happy to have her!





 Hi my name is Liz, I’m originally from Yorkshire England but have lived in Canada for 37 years. I have called Qualicum Beach my home since April of this year.  I have 3 children, my own daughter whom I adopted from Russia when she was just 5 months old (my greatest pride and joy) and a beautiful step daughter and son, who are both married and have given us 3 gorgeous grandkids. 
I’ve always been a care giver, whether it was for children, adults with disabilities or my husbands elderly uncle, it’s something I love to do. 
I love to cook, garden, organize and love a clean home.
My fun things to do are; swimming in the ocean (yes, here in Qualicum Beach) I swam 3 times a week this past summer with a wonderful elderly client of mine whom I met though Seren Home Support Services. I love walks, especially near the water and generally love the outdoors. Life is a wonderful gift and we truly have to make the most out of it.
