I have worked with children for many years, I first began in 1982 when I took a certified babysitting course. I later became a camp counselor and when I started college in 1987 I began working at a daycare. I was an infant and toddler teacher before changing centers for advancement and became a preschool teacher. By this time I had my AS in early childhood and child psychology. I was working towards my BS when I married and he was in the Navy so we relocated to Georgia.I became a nanny there while I was working towards my degree. I was a nanny for 2 different families with identical twins , one set is grown and one of the girls is in medical school, the second family was in Connecticut when we returned here. I was with this family for only 3 years when I was then expecting. I Read more have 1 child who turned 14 today ( Nov 21), I am happily married and although I did return to preschool I have found for me personally I am very happy providing special personal care for families. I live in milford with my son and husband and our 2 cats and turtle. I am comfortable with animals as I always had them while I was growing up. I do not smoke, and I drink maybe oncertain every 6 months. I have had my license since I was 18 and have only had 2 accidents. I willingly will have finger. Prints or any otherbackground testing done that you request. I cook, and for one family I personally catered their dinner parties. Please feel free to ask me any questions .
