Summary

I am a single mother who has not worked much because I stayed at home with my children.  My younger two children are in high school now and do not need me as much as they did when they were small. I am looking for a job with flexible hours. Working on the weekends is okay as long as it is not both days every weekend.

Education

Credits only no degree

Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis

I began as an English major, but due to family issues I did not do well. I decided taking care of my children took priority  over me continuing my education.

20032005

Credits only no degree

Marion University

I started off as an Education major, but soon found my passion for writing and changed my major to English. I attended at night part time. I left school shortly after my father passed away because my children needed me to help them process their grief. I was his primary care giver in the day.
