Hi, my name is Lori. I am a 53-year-old mother of two (ages 22 and 23) and a Grandmother of four (ages 8, 6, 3 and 1 month old) whom I have the pleasure of helping to raise. I am fun-loving, energetic, nurturing and greatly enjoy assisting the young mind in the learning process. I am currently enrolled in Early Childhood Education Director classes with plans to continue on to my degree in Child Psychology. I have certificates of course completion in understanding ADHD, positive behavior interventions and have successfully completed training in BAT/Autism. I am also certified in adult, child, infant CPR and First Aid. In addition, I am a Certified Respite Provider through the Desert Regional Center and am a registered Child care Provider. Life itself, though, has still been the greatest learning experience with my own daughter's past struggle with a childhood cancer and just plain everyday care and concerns that come along with loving and caring for a child. I am very much capable of caring for any and all children. My children have always been my life and I will care for your children with nothing less than this same love and understanding. With so much yet to learn, I welcome and greatly look forward to all opportunities.
