My career and passion for children and their sense of life started when I was 8 years old. My mother signed me up at our Orinda church to help a group of preschool children from Fruitvale, Oakland. I still remember how curious, interactive, and how each child's excitement to come and play. It made me feel that heartwarming feeling you get when you around children. Throughout my life, I seem to be drawn back to helping young children and supplying parents with education, experiences with honest and open communication. I am energetic and create cohesive interpersonal relationships, whether it be the board of directors, teachers, staff, and other partnerships in the community. Being intuitive to children, parents, and the teams is a key I treasure. When it comes to children and their causes I am persuasive credible and charismatic! I have had many challenges that always taught me something new. Read more Owning my business taught me that there are still goals you are working towards; however, every day is a modern, fresh day. There can be times helping a parent in a tough situation with their child or tired staff member who just needs a five-minute break or the ever-overflowing toilet because it was fun to see how it would soak up. All these encounters need attention. I wanted to share with you about me personally and why this is so important for me to use my skills and absolute passion for creating a positive future for all. Thank you for your consideration. Sincerely, Catherine
