Hello family. I am known to my friends and clients as Nana. At one time, our blended family had 7 children, ages 10 months to 20 years old. I home schooled my youngest children, now aged 16 and 20. I am a birth and postpartum doula, a breastfeeding peer counselor, have cared for newborn twins, a child with non-verbal autism, and raised a bunch of teenagers. Pretty much nothing phases me! I speak English as my first language, and we speak English, Spanish and Guarani at home. I love reading, gardening, singing, playing dress-up, making costumes and doing art with little ones. I have excellent local references, & my clients would describe me as dependable, flexible, calm, affectionate and helpful. I am also a gardener, culinary educator & artist. I love cats and dogs too! I am older in age, but definitely young in spirit and strong in body. Peace.
