I have done childcare in some form or another since I was about 14 years old. I have worked with children of all ages. I come from a very large family where we always looked out for one another. I love children and animals. I am a registered nurse and have practiced in several specialties including emergency medicine. I moved to Massachusetts from North Carolina to participate as an apprentice at the Williamstown Theatre Festival. While in North Carolina, I worked for the ARC of NC. I was a Personal Support Specialist which means I assisted a severely mentally and physically handicapped woman.
