Hi there! As the oldest of 3 siblings and 16 cousins, I have been caring for children all my life. I have been babysitting since age 14 and am certified in CPR. I currently work as a special education teaching assistant and it is one of the best decisions I have ever made. Not many people can say they are happy to go to work every day but I am one of the lucky few. I have experience caregiving for both children with and without special needs. I love learning, being silly, staying active and exploring all the indoor and outdoor things that Jacksonville has to offer. I can be happy reading a book, playing a board game, checking out a museum or playing at the park. I have a passion for art and cooking so I am known to come up with crafts or a treat to bake with the kids I care for. I look forward to meeting you and making fun memories with your kids!
