Special Needs/Senior Caregiver
I was previously a preschool co-teacher in a 3-year-old classroom. I also have children of my own. I am familiar with a variety of special needs (I have an amazing son with Down syndrome), including using an epi-pen, nebulizer, administering meds and special diets. I am CPR and first aid certified, and have all of my childcare credentials that are required through Florida Department of Children and Families. I have been fingerprinted and background checked. We are a law enforcement family (my husband recently retired from Tampa police after 27 years!). I am very comfortable juggling schedules, activities, pets, house management and kids all at the same time.
I grew up with, and have spent my life helping care for, and now have guardianship of, my adult sister who has cerebral palsy, developmental delay, seizure disorder and is wheelchair bound. I also have a preteen son who has Down syndrome.
