About Maria

I have been a nurse for over 15 years now, but I always had a mothering nurturing nature. Since I was a little girl I use to care for my grandparents chickens and ducklings, when they hatched out of their eggs, till their mother-hen finished with all the eggs. As student nurse I used to volunteer to a paediatric hospital and care for abandoned babies as well as a geriatric hospital and care for abandoned older adults with no families. I am a RN in Australia and UK, but in USA I don't hold an RN license yet. I am looking for a part time care job as I am a home stay mum since we moved to the US in 2018. If my skills and character suites your needs please don't hesitate to contact me. Thank you!
