I am 38 years old, married for 13 years and have two children. My daughter is 11 and my son is 4. We recently moved to Rancho Cordova, Ca from Novato, Ca. We moved to Ca from Mobile, Alabama almost 4 years ago. My hobbies include cooking, scrapbooking, photography, painting, making scarfs and almost anything crafty. I am a very crafty and creative person. I enjoy being outdoors, gardening, going to the beach, fishing, swimming, tennis, and softball. On the weekend my family enjoys BBQ's, going to the park for picnics and tennis. I am an animal lover and have two mini schnauzers. Hopefully soon we will be adding a golden retriever to the family. I enjoy taking care of people and putting a smile on their face. I studied elementary education in college and recently obtained my CNA license. I have owned 2 daycares and was a childcare provider at both. Watching the children grow and learn things that you teach them is very rewarding. I decided to get my CNA license and CPR certificate, because I enjoy taking care of people, and it's rewarding knowing that I am make a difference in someone's life. I am very dedicated to my work, dependable, trustworthy, and always smiling. I am a hard worker, work well with others, and and have wonderful people skills. I am very flexable and good in any type of situation that may arise. I feel that if you pay it forward than you yourself will have a fullfilling and rewarding life. I didn't just happen upon this profession, my mother is also a CNA nurse. I take courses yearly in the class room, and on line. My CPR is up to date. I have wonderful references. When it comes to nursing I have even more experience then the 9 years I mentioned. I worked with AIDS patients when other nurses were afraid to do so. Just last year I was monitoring glucose levels, and giving insulin injections ,to a diabetic client. I have worked in skilled nursing,and in hospitals such as: Stanford, Mercy at Folsom, and Sutter in Sacramento. My hobbies are theatre, the arts, and sewing. I respect and I learn so much from my clients. I cook, and do things the way they want me to.
