I am currently a receptionist at a Marriott hotel and have my own cleaning business on the side. I've done a 6-month flight attendant course in Brazil where I was trained with first aid assistance and with how to address, understand and handle all kinds of people (and children) in a caring yet professional manner. Although my current jobs do not require taking care of children, I am responsible for maintaining my surroundings in order, being entrusted with house keys and alarm codes, cleanliness, making schedules, being able to multitask, and resolving stressful situations. I do have some experience with paid babysitting back when I was in high school, for two of our neighbor's kids. The girl was 8 years old and the boy was 5 and I would walk them home from school about 4 times a week and watch them in my house for a few hours.
I've worked as a photojournalist in Brazil so I would consider myself an extrovert and interested in investing my time in other people's lives. I enjoy adventures and exploring new places just as much as staying indoors with a cup of tea and a book.
I have an associates degree in social science and am currently pursuing a BA in Theological Studies in Sanford, FL.
I would enjoy working with children because they give me life and energy being around them, and because I can understand being a working parent and needing help around the house, from my house cleaning business. It would be my pleasure to help parents and devote my time, care and experience in their child's lives. I want my presence and service to make the lives of busy parents easier!
