Being a former foster child in the state of Wisconsin I learned early that the secret to success is a loving family. Unfortunately I did not have a family to call my own but I had guardian angels that watched over me and directed me to the right path. In general “childcare” was part of my life and daily activities considering my mother was an house wife, foster mother of many children in addition a childcare provider. Providing for others, I never seen as an occupation because it came so naturally, I honestly thought that is what girls do. I went to College in Iowa (2003- 2005) and became my colleagues certified babysitter. Followed by taking some time away from school (2005-2006) and again found myself babysitting and tutoring for extra cash. And since becoming a flight attendant (2006 – 2007) I supervised unoccupied minors on board my aircraft on various occasions. I knew then it was a gift that many lacked. In my case what I was born to do!
