Full-time hours

I worked for four years as a Critical Care Tech in the mommy/baby unit when I was living in Colorado. I gained valuable knowledge and experience from this position. I also was a nanny for a family of two, one being prematurely born and her 18 month sibling. I worked for this family until the girls went to school. My most recent nanny position was in 2013 for a family with a two year old little girl. Mom decided to not return to work this fall after giving birth to their second child. Although I am sad, I will always be part of their lives.
