I am a married mother of two children, 4 & 6. I stayed home with with my children until they started school. My son is in 1st grade and my daughter is in half day preschool. I have cared for children since I was 12, so over 26 years. I have cared for many nieces & nephews as well (8 of them total). I cared for one of my nieces when she was an infant. I have cared for several children on a "paid" basis from infant to 9 years old. In addition to working as a caregiver, I have also worked as a Police Officer and in an Emergency Room of a hospital. I am calm, cool and collected in an emergency and have first hand experience in those situations. I LOVE being around children!
