My name is Renske, I’m a trained music therapist and meditation teacher. I have worked for 8 months as a live-in carer for adults with spinal cord injuries in 2016. I have worked in various meditation centres as a course manager and kitchen assistant in 2015. Before that I've worked as a project manager and care coordinator at a home care company and as a psychiatric nursing assistant at a psychiatric hospital. I’ve done internships as a music therapist at various day-care centres for adults with severe mental and physical disabilities.

I am passionate about food and I have worked in organic meat and fish shops for more than 6 years. Last summer I worked as a pastry chef in an organic juice bar in London.

I am reliable, honest, friendly and hard-working, and passionate about my work. I love to help and inspire others to find happiness in their lives. I am supportive and creative and I care about the physical, mental and spiritual well-being of others.

I'm 31 year old vegan. I'm originally from The Netherlands but I’m currently working and living in the UK. In my free time I love to cook, spend time in nature, read, write, meditate, practise yoga and play music.

I am also available for live-in care at a rate of £130 per 24 hours.

Please note that I am away from 1st May - 17th May and will respond to any messages on my return. Thanks!
