Part -Time And/or On Call Babysitter
I am a mom of two grown kids who were born and raised on Oahu, and babysat their cousins, friends and neighbor children. I have always worked with kids and animals because that is where my heart is and it comes naturally for me to be fun loving, adventurous, and sensitive to each individual's learning needs. I love teaching new things, exploring the outdoors, and reading stories is the best! I was a substitute teacher, a nanny for 2 families of 5 kids together, AYSO soccer coach, and cared for 100's of animals : cats, dogs, turtles, birds and now a duck who flew into my yard and made it her home. Most of my animals were rescued or abandoned. In addition to domestic animal experience, I am a dedicated and experienced volunteer for the past 13 years working with Hawaiian monk seals under Hawaiian Marine Animal Response agency and N0AA Fisheries. I respond on search and rescues and I am a frequent outreach volunteer with the public on beaches, teaching all about this endangered species.
