Rita’s Bio

I have relocated from New York. I have worked in a few fields over the years, as a GM in a Holiday Inn Hotel along with years of customer service experience. Most recently, I was a Day Manager at Yogaville, an ashram in VA. I also practice Hatha yoga and have received my certification to teach.
Children are my true passion, I was a single mother raising two daughters, and they have both grown to be phenomenal women. Each one gave me three grandchildren. The first three are ages 21, 18, and 12. The second batch, from my younger daughter are a 4year old, and a set of twins, 3 years old.
I am not a typical grandmother. My best references would probably come from my 6 grandchildren, but I have an on going history with a family that I babysat for a few years, on and off. We are still friends, and I'm positive that they would have no problem giving me a referral. I have done some sitting in Mt. Pleasant and the Charleston area.
I have been babysiitting since I was 13 years old. But my true appreciation for children of all ages came later. I enjoy the company of children and they enjoy mine.
In addition, I have also been a caretaker for many elderly people, my own mother included. She passed away in June 2009.
I have a loving heart, and a thirst for learning and teaching. I am a writer, avid reader, first aid and CPR certified. I also am able to drive to and from your home. I never met a child or elderly person I couldn't win over!
