I am a parent to 2 teenagers and have been called mother to all children by many parents. As an RN, I am more than a babysitter or a childcare giver. I spend quality time with your child, ensuring that his physical, emotional and medical needs are met.
My health care career has spanned many areas including emergency care, medical surgical, home health and pediatrics. I was a paramedic for several years as well as assisted in the home birth of about 40 babies here in Northern Arizona, including a set of surprise twins! I was the Residence Nurse/Nursing Director at an Extreme Sports Camp www.woodwardwest.com for 7 years. Most recently, I worked as a school nurse for the local school district.
I have a special connection and can relate well to infants, children and teens. I use several techniques in helping children become comfortable with me and to minimize the discomfort when parents leave. Parents and family have the assurance that a professional nurse is providing private, personalized child care or senior caregiver services.
