I am a retired clinical social worker, re-entering the the work force, differently! I am seeking "work" that is fulfilling, that I can give of myself, connect emotionally, nourish and nurture, I've had 30+ years of working with individuals with intense/imminent needs. I had a very well rounded career, covered the age spectrum, hospitals, nursing homes, Developmentally Disabled, rehab centers. hospitals, hospice, home health care. I am still full of giving, I just want to give differently!
I have always loved infants and children. I started at 9 as a Mother's Helper with an 8 week old baby in my apartment building. I comforted her, stimulated her, walked her, bathed her.....there was no pay involved, I was too happy to do it. I continued babysitting even after my husband and I were married. He was known to the families through me so they were comfortable with him being around. This was the foundation of their "date weekends."
We have raised two sons, and their friends who called our home, "home." SInce we have no grandchildren (yet) and I love children, I feel driven to do childcare. I have much to give emotionally, I simply love to nourish, nurture and take care of people. I also love to cook. It's who I am.
I have a BA in Psychology (Phi Beta Kappa) and am knowledgeable about developmental needs of children, family dynamics, etc. Going onto a Masters Degree in Social Work, I had more education about human dynamics, and then the years of practice.
I cannot offer certifications, I am not current on a CPR cert. even though I have been volunteering at Arrowhead Hospital for the last 6+ years. I can get into a certification program, have fingerprint checks or whatever is required. My resume is available, as would be references.
I am seeking part time or full time work, live in Arrowhead Ranch, am willing to drive within Phoenix and the West Valley. I love animals, we have never been without pets, including an array of reptiles.
My fantasy position is to Nanny a family with a newborn and the inherent adjustments, help with physical healing, meals, baby laundry, baby's area. Before and after school care, help with homework,, transport to activities, dinner prep is right up there, too.
I am smart, motivated, reliable. I am not satisfied with anything less than a job well done with great effort to be perfectly done.
I will welcome the opportunity to speak with you further.
Thank you in advance.
