I have been babysitting all ages of children since I was 11 years old. After graduating high school I was a live-in nanny for 2 children ages 6 months & 9 yrs old. During this time I also took care of another newborn child from a separate family who lived nearby. After getting married in 1992 to a navy corpsman I was hired on base as a Program Assistant Caregiver for 12-14 children who were 4-5 or 2-3 years of age depending on which classroom I was assigned. I have completed CPR certification classes, and can renew if needed. I have also built college credits for childhood education while working. My passion is providing children and animals with patience, security, loving kindness, respect and attention that is necessary to be healthy & happy. I am currently single with 2 furbabies that I rescued. I moved to Washington in 2012 to develop a close bond with my twin nieces who are such a joy to be around!
