About me-

 I am motivated and learn quickly. Can adapt to many environments with ease, and smile while doing so. I have spent the past few years caring for my children and home. From a Emergency pet hospital situation,  sleepless nights with children, to a retail job with focus on customer service, I have experienced varying levels of responsibilities and stresses, and have continually maintained a positive attitude.

Thank you for your consideration
