I am a young, but retired teacher and have worked as a personal chef in the past. I loved my teaching career, but had the opportunity to retire early to enjoy my daughter's last year of collegiate sports. She recently graduated and I am looking forward to supporting other families with tutoring, childcare, elder care, pet care and even as a personal assistant. I have years of experience in all of the above categories and no longer need the full time responsibilities of being an award winning teacher. I am excited about exploring different opportunities in my community and helping other families as they climb the ladders of success with busy work schedules or travel and need temporary care. I decided to join this site because I am at a point in my life where I am excited about choosing support roles where I can make a difference, simply because I enjoy it!
Do you need meals for the week prepared? Do you need a part time fill in for your regular child care? How about a pet sitter, while you travel over the holidays or the summer so your pet can stay in the comfort of their own home.
Do you need laundry picked up, someone to shop for your groceries, help the kids complete a long term project? Contact me and let's discuss how my vast experience and desire to work with a busy family can make your life just a little less hectic !
