I’m a middle aged trustworthy woman. I’ve been a Registered Nurse for 25 plus years. I started babysitting while in grade school. I’m one of 9 children - I cared for my younger siblings since I was a child. I worked 3 years in the newborn and special care nurseries. I’ve been a caregiver to my parents and grandparents. I enjoy working with children as well as the elderly. I’m CPR certified and have worked in the emergency room - so I’m very comfortable in emergency situations. I’m fit and in good shape. I love animals and have been a cat and dog owner for 40 years. I spend lots of time walking my German Shepherd on the beach. I’m also a great cook! I own a car and am a very safe driver with a clean driving record. I excelled in scholastics - so helping with homework is not Read more a problem. I’m a good swimmer also.
