Professional Summary

I am experienced in caregiving in general but held an Infant Room Supervisor job for 9 years, leaving only to focus on my own children. Providing a safe, warm, welcoming, loving and clean place for parents in our community to entrust their youngest children is something I am passionate about being a part of. I believe it to be one of the most difficult things as a parent, to face reentry into the workforce, missing hours each day with your infant during a time of significant development. This is why I strive to provide the optimal, most ideal environment and caregiving professional to any family willing to leave their most precious child in my care.
