I love kids! I have raised 2 wonderful daughters and have 12 nieces and nephews that I adore. After working 16 years in retail I made the decision to follow my passion and do what truly makes me happy. I am a caretaker at heart, so becoming part of a child's life and their family is an easy fit for me. There is nothing more precious and innocent than our children. They deserve the best start we can give them, which begins with an abundance of love and gentle guidance. Children are little sponges; it's so fascinating watching them soak up experiences and knowledge. I will give your child the love, care and nurturing they need, as well as play and learning time. I absolutely love to take walks, explore, go to the park, read books, music and singing, arts and crafts, games, cooking, baking, and much more. In addition, I'm an extremely safety conscious person and aware of the dangers inside and outside of our homes. I am First Aid and CPR certified. I will clean and prep meals (time permitting), dependent upon child's needs and age. I love all animals and enjoy walking and interacting with them. I am flexible with schedules. I have an exemplary driving record.
