The switch came after my cancer diagnosis in 2010. I'm healthy and doing well now; a lot of yoga and cycling! I'm working on publishing a memoir and in my spare time, I operate a small non-profit from home that provides resources for cancer patients and online support groups. I absolutely love and adore kids. I'm very optimistic and energetic and interactive. I can provide multiple references with families I've worked with for a while. Caring for kids seems to come natural to me. I like to follow the parent's set of rules, as a way to discipline. I do have a knack for helping children with mental illness and disorders such as ADD/HDHD and Dyslexia, as I grew up with it and understand it. I also raised a sibling with a mental illness and disorder. I'm extremely patient, but do set boundaries with the kiddos. I also had a part in raising some of my younger sisters (8-10 years younger). I had legal guardianship of the two of them in my twenties and now they're in their early twenties with their own kids.
I look forward to speaking with you!
