I enjoy working with children of all ages. I'm the oldest of nine siblings. From the time I was seven years old I was my mother's little helper of my siblings. At the age of fifteen my mother allowed me to be a babysitter for family and friends children. I was a stay at home mom volunteering on PTA and the school sport teams my son participated in, until 1989, I became a single parent which meant me going to work, I continue to volunteer as my schedule would allowed me. In 1994 I started working as a Governess/nanny, I enjoyed it so much, it became my life career, working and helping families to ease their minds when it come to the safty and care of their children. It give me great joy and peace knowing that I make a different in a child's life.

I couldn't wait to become a babysitter when I was young and after completing the Red Cross Babysitter course I accepted my first job at the age of 11! Since that point I've sat for dozens of families and kept close relationships with many of my "kids"! I am experienced with children with various types of special needs including autism, Fragile- X syndrome, cerebral palsy and mental retardation. I have experience with all ages from premature babies to elder care.
