I have raised three children and did so while working full-time, so I know what it's like to be busy and not have much spare time. I was always involved in their daycare and school activities. I have young nieces and nephews that I love spending time with. I am a non-smoker and I am comfortable with pets (as long as they are friendly). I grew up with dogs, but currently have a cat. I have reliable transportation, and am educated, having received a bachelor's and master's degree from SIU Carbondale. I would love the opportunity to meet your family and care for your child or children, provide pet care, or clean your house. Thanks for considering me.
