  About Me
I am a 32-year African American Woman that has 3 degrees (2 BA's- Broadcasting and Communications and an MBA) and 2 certificates (CPR/First Aide & Early Childhood Education - 12 units). For the past 15 years I have worked with all ages of children in recreation programs and preschool programs including in the cities of Alameda, Oakland, Santa Clara Parks and San Bernardino. I am looking to move from the corporate world of advertising so I can have some fun with my own little playmate and also devote more time to my hobby of writing. This is definitely my dream job and I hope I can find a family to work for soon.

I am single and do not have any kids of my own, although I have two nieces, one is 5 and the other is 14. In order to consider leaving my current employer I would need to ensure that the family is the right fit and the pay is commensurable with my experience and education - these two factors would make a winning combination.

My limitations are: Cigarette smoke, cats (allergic to both) and cannot do heavy lifting.

At several recreation programs in Alameda County I worked as a Recreation Leader, Tiny Tot Teacher and a Supervisor where I planned and organized a wide variety of recreational programs at parks.

In addition I supervised Special Needs children in a recreational and classroom setting to support mainstream inclusion in activities.
