Meet Patty

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

I've always loved babies and young children and started babysitting at a young age. I've raised my son, helped raise my grandson and have helped care for and babysat my nieces and nephews. I earned an Associate's Degree in Child Development and Bachelor's Degree in Psychology. When my son was small, I had Licensed Home Day Care for several years. Most of the jobs I've have and enjoyed have been in the Social Work/Case Managment area, mainly working with families that had young children. I provided Early Childhood Education, assessed if Devepomental milestones were being met and providing activities to assist in advancing them in delayed areas. I advocating for services the children and families were in need of. I'm now in the position to be able to devote my work time to caring for children, which for me will be combining responsibility, work and fun. I am a non-smoker, Read more love animals, am a safe driver, drive a safe, reliable car and can provide references.
