My Personal Passion:
As long as I can remember, I have been in love with babies. Everywhere I went when I was younger I had to take along all my dolls. They were diapered (with real diapers), “potty trained,” and loved like no other. I dreaded the days when my Cabbage Patch dolls had to take a bath in the washing machine and all I could see were their little plastic heads bobbing back and forth. This nurturing quality has carried over into my professional life and I still love children just as much as I did when I was young.
I started my professional child care career in 2004 while working on my undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas. Since then, I have worked for dozens of families and children of all ages. I’ve now found myself in the Washington, D. C. area after moving all the way from Austin, Texas. I have over 3,000 hours of experience with newborns and a great understanding of the delicacies it takes to care for someone in their first few months of life. I have currently completed the Newborn Care Specialist Association’s 8 part course and approved 200 question test as part of the Newborn Care Specialist Certification requirements. Along with my 3,000+ hours, I am an Advanced Certified Newborn Care Specialist. With my experience and education, I take pride in providing families with everything they need in this next journey in their life.
