Growing up as the oldest of 8 children, I have always been the one to look over all of the little ones. Because of this, since a young age, I have loved working with children; whether it's helping with school work, preparing meals, or just being there for basic companionship. I take my responsibility as caregiver very seriously as I understand how impressionable and easily influenced young children are and how important it is to distill good values and life lessons in them not only by telling them but by setting the example. I've always been known to be the "mom" in social situations because i'm naturally inclined to be most concerned about others' well-being. I started babysitting neighborhood children and those of family friends at the age of 13 and have since cared for upwards of 10 children (including those with physical and mental disabilities including autism) as well Read more as ran the childcare room in a local gymnastics in my town. I am CPR certified and going to school for culinary arts. I have never met a child I couldn't connect with, my continued joyful demeanor never fails to resonate with even the most wild of kids.
