Liza D. - Seeking Work in Alachua

Full-time hours
27 yrs of experience

I am a retired nurse living in Gainesville with my husband. My son will be graduating from UF this spring and my daughter also lives in Gainesville. I volunteer as a Guardian Ad Litem, enjoy gardening and the outdoors. I would love to have a little kiddo to share my time with. We would talk, play, be outside, read, and keep busy together. Go for walks, and overall be highly interactive and attentive to the little ones needs. I believe little ones need a lot of attention and should be comforted and held if they cry. I guess I would be like an energetic loving grandma!
