Meet Patricia

Between my husband and I, we have seven grown children with eighteen wonderful grandchildren. My two oldest grandsons have joined the Army and are/ have been deployed overseas. The other sixteen live out of state and are missed very much. We moved to Oregon for my husband’s work and had to leave all family behind. I’m a grandma in need of children to mold, teach, coach, and nurture. Nothing better for a lonely grandma than a child’s laughter, love, and respect. Could that child be yours? I have been a restaurant, hotel, and casino manager for over thirty-five years. Throughout my employment history, I’ve had between thirty to forty staff members at any given time. I was quite the work-a-holic, back in the day, but a bad accident ended my employment career. I am now seeking a new adventure. I enjoy hugs-n-kisses, crafting, baking, (all grandma things), swimming, outdoor sports, Read more reading to the little ones, games, splashing in puddles, and long walks. I’m very active, organized, and dependable I am looking for a date night or weekend employment. I live in Hillsboro, and have my own car. I am very reliable and would love to settle in with a new family. Can I help you? I have been certified in CPR and First Aid, and used this training in my restaurant employment. I believe in being prompt and engaging with my care. I am currently employed as a nanny for two wonderful families, One family in the early morning before school, and the other, in the afternoon after school. This will change when school lets out, and I will be looking for full time employment at that time.
