Summary

My name is Cathy Ducote, I am 49 years old, married and have 2 children.  We were transferred to Houston for my husband's job in October 2008, and we are purchasing a home in the Sugar Land area. My children are grown and live in Baton Rouge, LA and I am ready to return to work.  I have worked in the Maternal/Child field of nursing for 27 years, with extensive experience in Labor and Delivery, Postpartum, Nursery and NICU. I also did some follow up NICU visits for Home Health and one semester of Clinical Instructor for RN students on a Postpartum unit. I have also worked closely with the Lactation Department in teaching new moms to breastfeed newborns and premature infants. After many years in NICU, I am ready for a change of pace, and to learn something different. I have a strong work ethic, am honest and hardworking.  I have excellent references from Woman's Hospital where I worked for most of my 27 years.

Interest

My favorite pastime is scrapbooking, I love to preserve the memories of my family.  I also love traveling, shopping and spending time with friends. I enjoy playing Golf with my husband, snow skiing and hiking.

I am also very involved with my Church.
