Hello, a little about me...I am originally from Texas and moved here for school. I have a huge love for Washington after living here with family as a teen. I am a recent University of Washington Graduate. I majored in Biology with a focus on Marine Science. Also, I have a minor in Psychology. I volunteer with wildlife rescues and species/watee qualitt monitoring. My goal is to do wildlife rehabilitation and conservation after Grad School. I have been lucky enough to travel quite a bit in my 28 years. I try to live a pretty active lifestyle while still dedicating much of my time to my amazing pets. I have been a babysitter from a young teen when I started by assisting my older sister with her jobs. We started off watching neighbors kids and eventually I created my own path of nannying. I have experience with nannying premature infants all the way up to mid teens. I enjoy being able to share my creativity and excitement for life with those I cross paths with. I have experience with Alzheimer's and pet caregiving as well. I have cpr, first aid, hmfood handling, and quite a few other certifications. Throughout community college and the first seven years of my twenties, I was also involved with event promotions as a full time job.

I am an open book and would love to answer any questions you may have.
