I'm compassionate, kind, patient, honest, and caring I love kids, their energy, sense of wonder, and intelligence amazed me.

I'm a single mom who raised 4 adorable children. They are now in their 20's and independently living on their own. I love being a mom. I missed those days when they were still young. It was so much fun having them around. I also helped in taking care of my nephew since he was 6 months old. He is now 8 years old.

I have completed my Bachelor's degree in Psychology. Most of my previous work revolves around Human Resources. I'm now ready to make a change by focusing on what I love most which is taking care of kids. It gives me so much joy to be able to nurture young minds and see them grow into beautiful human beings.

I'm fluent in English and Tagalog. I love to cook and bake! I can sing and dance. I love to draw and do crafts with kids.
