Lisa Hayes - Recreation Therapist / Respite Worker

Lisa has worked with Branches of Life for 4 years, has a degree in Gerontology from
McMaster University, a diploma from Canadore College in Recreation Therapy and is also certified in Dementiability. Lisa provides exceptional care and support to her clients as though they were family - as she is very much inspired by her admirable Grandmother Jessie, her husband Chris, two teenage daughters, a dog named Bubba and a cat named Roxy.

After a busy day of providing care and support, you can find Lisa unwinding in her garden, listening to country music, and watching sunsets. On the weekend you’ll most likely find her at a rugby field or gym watching her girls play basketball or rugby, finding enjoyment in the simple things and unwinding with a glass of red wine.

Sam Jenkins – Personal Support Worker

Sam began with Branches of Life as a student from Westervelt College, where she graduated in November 2018 as a certified PSW. Sam has a great attitude in her work and home life and having been a manager for a large company for many years, she brings a great deal of dedication and teamwork to the company. Sam takes the initiative to get the job done with
the best of her abilities and goes over and above.

Sam has experience working with children with disabilities and anxiety disorders and she excels in the strength to move forward and make each day different to all of her clients. When Sam is not busy, you will find her with her husband Kyle, their 3 kids, and a new dog to chase around - all hanging out at the trailer, or having a kitchen party, Newfoundland style with her friends and family.

Sandy Matthews

Sandy is extremely dedicated to her clients, her family and her work - and we’re proud to say she has been with Branches of Life since day one. Having grown up with 8 brothers and sisters, as a recent grandma to Elliott (and loving every minute of it), and as an active weekly volunteer with her Brownie group; Sandy believes that each and every person deserves the best care possible and gives all of her attention to her work.

Sandy brings a spark of light to our clients and uses her fun and witty side to bring them to life. She is a great team player, loves any chance to have a family get together and recently she and her spunky siblings have been auditioned three times for Canadian Family Feud. We wish them all the luck!

Amanda is an eventful story teller and loves to chat with her clients, has a strong personality, a great spirit, and can bring a room full of people into tears from laughter.
