I have been a caregiver for many years, beginning in 1967 when I cared for my grandmother in the afternoons before my grandfather came home. She was in the first stages of Alzheimer's. That lasted a year until they moved out of town. My next experience was caring for my children as a single parent. That entailed every aspect of caregiving and lasted until they left for college. Both are successful and happily married with two perfect children each. I began a career in real estate which involved an incredible amount of caregiving, from being their psychologist to their financial adviser. Handholding was quite extensive in sales, and following that , in office and sales management Finally, I have been a nanny since I came to this area in 2010. I've worked with a precious infant, a darling 4 year old who couldn't speak, a very moody 11 year old, and a willful 13 year old. My experience has been varied and long term. I've always been drawn to elderly people and children of all ages. My personality is warm and upbeat, enjoying affection and love. My nature is to be punctual, organized, dependable, and trustworthy with a strong work ethic.
