Work experience

Sep 2002Present

Stay-at-home Mom

I left Mountain View Casino to be a stay-at-home parent and have been doing so for just over 9 years. Being a mother of four is a difficult but fulfilling job. I believe I have learned so much from being a parent, things that I could not have learned from a formal education. My skills from this job include; standing for long periods of time, sitting for long periods of time, multi-tasking, communicating with difficult "customers", team building, skill building, time management, personal shopping, teaching (home-schooled children), home maintenance, meal planning, event planning, organizing various spaces, housekeeping as well as all other extraneous and necessary tasks required of me in this position.
