I raised them by myself since they were two and four with no family help . I understand the need for help when your trying to juggle everything and I’m also a great multitasker. I have my COVID vaccine and respect your wishes if you want me to wear a mask. I am cpr certified and have first aid training.I am honest and loyal. I am not the kind of person that leaves a job easily I stay for the long haul .I do Read more not smoke. My driving record is clean and I have no criminal record if you want a background check I can supply you with one. With my yoga training I have worked with kids that have ADHD , strokes and downs syndrome . I am patient and kind and soft spoken.I love to help it’s very rewarding . I hope get to help you with your needs wether it be chid care or elderly care or special needs. If it’s not me that you choose I hope you find the right fit as you search.
