Birthday: February 6
Hometown: Escanaba, Michigan
Favorite Crayola color: Robin's Egg Blue
Background: I loved babysitting as a young adult and cared for many children from newborn through adolescence throughout my life. I received my bachelor's degree in social work from a well-respected Christian college in St. Paul, MN. My husband and I were thrilled to adopt adorable babies twice while living in Pittsburgh, PA. We cloth-diapered our kids! Later, a couple of my social work positions were in adoption settings while other jobs involved casework in hospitals or state agencies. Now I want to make a different kind of contribution in providing excellent child care to families.I have always found children delightful and enjoy babysitting for my 4 year old god son and his big brother. Tutoring would be a pleasure as would reading to or with children!
Future plans: More mountain hiking, world travel, mission trips, and volunteering!
When she's not babysitting: Almost every year I get away with girlfriends for mountain hiking in national parks. In Florida, I love walking the beaches around sunset. Being involved in a great book club , gardening, and having friends and family over are also keeping me busy. And I love occasional trips with my husband!
