I am a loving mother of two with over 12 years of professional experience providing care for infants and children. In the past I had a home daycare with up to 6 children in care starting as newborns and staying until they started school, and also later was in a nanny share in someone else's home, with two infants and two toddlers. I have cared for newborns and multiples, and my experience includes overnight care and some experience with colic. I have established lasting friendships with the families I have provided care for in the past, and have enjoyed staying in touch with the children as they have grown up.
My education includes a bachelor's degree from Rockhurst University in Kansas City, MO, as well as 40 hours of infant certification, and 100 hours of training in various aspects of child development. I am also CPR and First Aid certified. I am very capable and at ease around babies, have a very caring disposition, and handle stressful situations very calmly and efficiently. I also can be flexible and accommodating to the specific needs of a family, and am extremely dependable.
I have lived in Fort Collins for 15 years, and I am a non-smoker who is healthy and very physically active. I have a great love of the outdoors and the beautiful Colorado scenery, and enjoy taking photos, doing
lots of walking, and getting to the mountains to hike and bike at every available opportunity!
