I am a 51-year-old mother of two daughters, one away at college the other leaving soon. I am a former EMT-D as well as a trainer. I adore children of all ages and truly love caring for younger ones. I am an avid reader to my charges as well as constantly singing or whistling around them. I adore all animals and count one dog and 3 cats, all rescues, as my family. Therefore having an animal present during the work day is a welcome bonus. I am always punctual & follow the rules provided to the letter. I provide love, compassion & security to all my clients equal to what I would expect my own family to receive. I have a car and just recently re-certified for adult/child/infant CPR. I believe in walks, backyard play and playing in local parks. I love arts and crafts as well as cooking/baking fun. I first and foremost am a mom. I know all the elements in caring for a child in order to provide them with a safe, fun, loving, environment, simply carried out according to your rules.
