My experience with children began with being put in charge of my much younger infant sister,followed by babysitting in the neighborhood at age 12. But that was long ago. Since then I have raised 2 children of my own, and was main caretaker for my 4 nieces and nephews. I have a love for children, and derive joy from watching and nurturing the growth of people. I have a love for people in general, of all ages, and a great respect for individual challenges we all face. For this reason, the last 20 years, my career has been in massage therapy and nursing. I am license current in both. At this point in my life with my kids gone, I am looking for a change to a more home-like environment in which to focus my skills and heart. I have excellent cleaning, organizational and prioritizing skills. I also have an Read more excellent work ethic, am able to assess needs and independently do what needs to be done. I believe in being proactive and excellent in all that I undertake. I am an excellent cook, specializing in creating healthy meals that are actually tastey! Other skills and experience include minor home repairs and painting, which I have also done professionally. One obtains many experiences and skills in a lifetime, and though I have picked up many, at this time I would like to focus my skills in a small, nurturing, growing environment where I know I can make a difference. That is what is satisfying to me. I
