I loved baby dolls & had one I cared for like it was my own. Equipped with Girl Scout badges in First Aid and CPR, babysitting in my neighborhood became my first job and I loved it. I was fortunate to care for children of all ages - infants to teenagers, including a special needs 11-year-old. I've worked with children on and off for 20+ years, including church nurseries, vacation Bible Schools, camp counselors, and nannying. As a single mother, I've reared an accomplished daughter, now 22. I've also cared for friends children over the years, and lived with my Goddaughter (almost 2) during her formative stages both day & overnights. Most recently I have cared for a 2-year-old & experiencing the birth of her brother. Most recently, I have nannied a 3-month-old and 6-month-old simultaneously. I enjoy interactive activities & teaching children - arts & crafts, reading, outdoor play, music, cooking & exploring new adventures. I'm certified in Pediatric & Adult CPR & First Aid.
