I raised three children of my own. 3 boys and a girl. My daughter recently left for college. My house is quiet now and I miss having kids around the house. My husband (the kids’ father) passed away 5 years ago. I worked 5 jobs in order to support my children and continue the lifestyle we desired for them. We stayed in Austin and had agreed, when the kids were young, not to move. We both had moved a lot when we were young and we knew we didn’t want that life for them. Well now everybody’s gone and I think I want to move. I have family and friends in the Burnsville area. I have always worked as a caregiver. I am COR certified and first aid certified and have been every year for the last 24 years. I’ve cared mainly for handicapped individuals at many different levels and Read more with varying needs. I love my job and will have a hard time leaving but I’ve promised to be back for visits. Shortly before my husband passed, I graduated with my bachelors in computer science. I went back to work 2 weeks afterwards, thinking I was ready. I wasn’t. I resigned from my computer job and went back to caregiving because it’s what comes naturally to me. So to summarize, I have been a caregiver since I was old enough to work, I am CPR and first aid certified, I have my bachelors degree in computer science and lastly, I love kids and would like to come help.
