I started babysitting when I was 13. I received a degree from Ferris State University in Child Development, and completed my internship at a preschool. I was a nanny for a family in Williamston, MI for 5 years and was a substitute teacher for 3 years, grades k - 12. I moved to the Detroit area, and was a nanny to a family of four. I was at this position for only a year, due to my husband's job transfer. After moving to the state of Illinois, I was employed by a family with three kids. I worked there until I started my externship at hospital. I worked as a surgical assistant for two years and have recently lost my job. I am currently studying to become certified as a surgical technologist and have plenty of time on my hands.
