I have had the privilege of being a sister, mother, caretaker, teacher's aide, tutor, volunteer, coach and program developer of youth programs through my 51 years. And all of these roles have been to my enjoyment! I have been active in professional affiliations and civic involvement including: volunteering for xx,Schools,.... Please ask for details as there are too many to list! When my daughter was a pre-schooler, I worked as a teacher's aide in a day care center in Aurora, Colorado. I founded a non-profit program in 2003 to provide direct transition services to high school youth with disabilities ages 14-21. From 1996 through 2000, I worked as a Transition Employment Specialist implementing activities for youth with disabilities based on their individual education plan. I also have been a private tutor providing life skills, basic literacy and employment support to youth and young adults with disabilities. I have been so fortunate to have so many incredible opportunities to create a nurturing environment in which children can learn and grow. But, my greatest joy has come from just being a Mom and friend to my lovely, adventurious 26 year old daughter!

Teaching and child care has always been my passion. Starting in my home country, Colombia, I added up to 10 years of experience working in a children's burn, unit and being a preschool teacher. Once I moved to the United States I worked as a child care provider for four years and then as a Spanish preschool teacher for nine. During those nine years I also tutored on the side. I have a vast amount of experience. I moved to Florida from Boise Idaho about 3 years ago. I desire to change my path; being a teacher to be a nanny. I found a great family who trusted me with their beautiful new born baby girl. I worked for them for 18 months. They enrolled baby in daycare. I found an other fantastic family who also trusted me with their beautiful 7 months girl. I worked for them for 13 months. Mom is now full time with the baby. I think the best experience I've had was raising my own two children. " I love what I do, and I do what I love" I believe children deserve the best care is possible.
