Vicki - Seeking Work in Hampden

22.85 / hour

Hi, I am a 44 year old mature woman looking to relocate from Maine to Nevada or warmer climate! I was born and raised in Maine and grew up up in a loving home with great morals and values. However I find that the climate is harder to deal with each passing year and I long for the warmth and sun. I have worked with children of all ages for many years. I currently work with at risk teens as a Residential Group Home Supervisor. I am a United States Veteran (US NAVY) and have a 21 year old son who is currently serving at Fort Sam Houston in Texas. I don't have any formal Nanny experience. Most of my professional career has been working in homeless shelters for children ages 10 to 17, working in an outreach program for at risk youth and working in a residential group home were children come to live when they have been abused, or if they have substance use issues or other at risk behaviors. Homes with teens are great but I would also consider small children and babies. I love pets and have a small dog of my own who would be relocating with me. I have a Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice and I am a Paralegal. I am CPR/First Aid certified and I am also hold a current CRMA license. I may need help with relocation expenses.ough I am well traveled it is still not without trepidation that I give up my current life for a new one. I am recently divorced and trying to find the proper place for myself, both logistically and financially. I have a lot to contribute to the right family!
