Hello, I love kids. I have lots of experience with children. I have a Bachelors degree in Psychology, a Masters degree in Early Childhood Education and a Graduate Specialist Credential in Child-Life. I have 3 daughters of my own that I raised with my husband of 32 years.. The oldest is 31, a new mother herself. She graduated college and is an RN, one is 29 and is a college grad who now lives in Los Angeles working for PETA and the youngest is 26 and also is living in California. I am the eldest of 5 children. I was born in Los Angeles and my entire family lives there. We moved to Virginia for my husbands work. I have lived in West Springfield for over 23 years. I work out every day at the gym in the mornings and I am also a personal trainer at One Life Fitness Read more in Burke. I also work with the elderly and disabled in their homes to improve their daily function of living. I like people of all ages and I feel I learn form everyone. I have lots of experience and great references.

Mrs. Sheryl was awesome! She was a great fit for our family! She did exactly what we asked her to do and then some by way of making CDs for our daughter, introducing our daughter to her older girls, and being flexible with her schedule. Whenever we needed her, Mrs. Sheryl was available. I highly recommend her to every one who is looking for a warm spirited, fun, friendly, healthy, and overall great person to care for their children. If we had not relocated to Oklahoma, we would still have Mrs. Sheryl. We were blessed to have her for the year that we did! Thank you, Mrs. Sheryl!!!!!
