Meet Ellen

  • Certified Nursing Assistant
  • Speaks Spanish
  • Comfortable with pets

I have been a caretaker as early as I can remember. I started babysitting for children in my neighborhood in middle school. I went to college and obtained my degree in Early Childhood Education. I raised three daughters of my own. The majority of my jobs over the past twenty five years have been caring for young children. I have acquired some great experience and lessons over the years. My strengths are my patience and reliability. I love singing and reading to children. Taking long nature walks is one of my favorite activities to share with children. If you would like to talk further;. Please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience. Thanks so much! Ellen Buetow
