Full-time hours
13 yrs of experience

I have worked steadily throughout high school and college, gaining valuable experience that coincide with my areas of interest and also equips me to present your children with stimulating activities others may not offer. For example, as a culinary assistant during the My Mother’s Daughter documentary filming retreat, extensive serving/bartending experience, and especially my extensive experience in childcare, I have acquired strong leadership and interpersonal skills. I am now able to think quickly in emergency situations and in those requiring quick assessment of many factors in order to make appropriate decisions. Dealing with the diverse concerns of parents and those I served, I have become adept at operating with the proper mix of authority, diplomacy, and tact. My life experience as a member of a family operating a small business in northern New Mexico provided me with a strong foundation in principles that affect businesses every day.
