  About Me
I have been married 32 years, have 2 married children and 1 beautiful 2 year old grandson. I currently live with my daughter's family to help take care of my grandson due to my daughter's fibromayalgia.
I was employed with a family for 3 years but had to give that up in March; just before the COVID lock down, due to moving and it becoming too much for me to care for essentially 3 households. I stay in touch as I have grown to love and care for them as my own family.
Working with kids has always been a part of my life whether it was babysitting, teaching dancing or mentoring in my church's youth group. I love finding out what interests a child and developing an understanding of that interest from the child's perspective. I love engaging at the child's level in whatever they are involved in whether it is learning a new skill; or enjoying a favourite past time.

I personally love dancing, reading and crafts. I love watching sports; hockey being my absolute favourite. I have recently taken up painting and am enjoying this form of creativity.

I believe every child is a gift and would love to meet yours.

I have been babysitting since I was 9 years old, starting with my brother who is 5 years my junior.
Through raising my own children I have learned to work with nutrition issues including sensitivities and allergies; other health issues; behavioral challenges- OCD, late talker, autistic traits, etc. ; and learning challenges. Both of my children were homeschooled and graduated with their BC Dogwood diplomas.
When I started my last job, I was caring for 3 children aged 3 months, 2 yrs. and 4yrs. Along with feeding and caring for the children's overall well- being, I was responsible for pre-school drop off and pickup, laundry and light house cleaning. Occasionally I would help with dinner prep.
