Full-time hours

I am an experienced mother of 3 grown, amazing children. My oldest is 33 and a Navy Chief Officer. My middle son just welcomed his second child into the world a few weeks ago. My youngest is in graduate school to become a family therapist. I have been a foster parent, and had the privilege to adopt my oldest child. I have also provided day care for a few years in my home when my children were young. I have always loved caring for children therefor when my youngest went off to college I became a nanny. I have been with the same family for the past 5 years. The child has now outgrown the need for a nanny, I am looking for the opportunity to help another family. My nature is kind, loving, and patient. These qualities allow me to relate very well with children.
