I am a former elementary school teacher. I took time off to care for my three children ranging in ages from 6-15. During three years of that time, I was a caregiver for two boys, infant and toddler. I kept busy by volunteering at my children's school. I was a Science Olympiad coach and in our final competition, our team placed 9th out of Macomb County Schools. More recently, I was a caregiver for a preschooler with special needs. My responsibilities included, meal prep, playing games or legos, getting him ready for school, assistance in getting on the bus and behavior intervention when needed. I am a compassionate and patient individual. I enjoy people of all ages and being of assistance to those in need. My faith is the center of my life and large part of why I feel called to be a caregiver.
