Meet Bessie

Hi, I have over 18 years experience as a stay-at-home mom of 3 boys as well as 3 years as a guardian of a teenage girl. Prior to parenthood, I completed my undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering, served 5 years in the United States Air Force and also worked in the private sector. I have experience chaperoning children on field trips, volunteering as a classroom mom, as a 4-H Club STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) mentor; teaching at Vacation Bible School and Children's Sunday School. In addition, I was a certified USA Swimming Official for over seven years and an AIA (Arizona Interscholastic Association) High School Swim Referee for over three years. I am active in the community and I currently serve as a club leader for boys and girls in the K-2nd grade age group which meets weekly during the school year at a neighborhood church located in Read more Ahwatukee. In addition, I have been a volunteer serving at a local food pantry in Ahwatukee for the past 5 years. I have a state food handler's certificate and I am CPR certified. I am very interested in further discussing the opportunity for me to be your child's part-time nanny. Hope to hear from you soon!
