I am a mother of 2 girls. My oldest is 23 and graduated from Northwood University (cum laude)with a Banking/Finance and Business Management Degree. She currently has a great job and is paying down her student loans. My youngest is 16 and is a Junior at xx School. She has been on the xx Team since she was a sophomore, she is a xx Crew Leader,on xx, she works as a Hostess at a local Eatery, she takes Dance classes outside of school and competes and she continues to make Honor Roll Grades. I am extremely proud of them and their accomplishments. I feel I have done a GREAT job in raising my own children. I ran a successful licensed Day Care in my home for 6 years while my oldest was born and loved it! We then moved to the Romeo area and I have been providing Child Care for a few families out here for over 15 years. Most recently, I was a Nanny for a family with 2 wonderful kids. I began working for them when their youngest was born. Their ages are almost 4 and 9.I worked for them for almost 4 years. Prior to that job, I worked for a family with 5 children(ages 6,5,4, and a set of twins that are 2 years old). They unwillingly had to let me go due to financial problems. I worked for this family for over 7 years. I am a very dependable and reliable person. I love children and would like to continue in the Child Care field that I have been in for over 20 years. I come highly recommended and would love to talk to you. References available on request.
