Meet Taryn

  • Comfortable with pets

I am a mother of seven children - four girls and three boys - the youngest,19, attending a local college for nursing. I absolutely adore infants, babies, toddlers and children, and while I have worked professionally outside of the home, and received my B. A. from a top university. My greatest ongoing achievement/work is "caring" for my children. I have also had several opportunities to care for other children. I am extremely loving and affectionate, and at the same time able to maintain order, structure, and needed boundaries for "our" little ones. I am playful,energetic, engaging, silly, compassionate, etc. I have a radar zone for safety and I am extremely vigilant and protective with age appropriate risks. I am very creative and I have a tremendous love of reading to children (can get quite dramatic, I come from a theater family and acting is in the blood). At the same Read more time, I always ensure that children follow through with their routines, homework, etc. I am a very energetic and upbeat woman. Instead of returning to the office with my professional skills, I have decided to employ my wonderful mothering skills for the good of other children and their working mothers!
