We do things Hawaiian-style. Hula is our life and what we do as an 'ohana (family). 
I am great with all age groups. I am especially kind and patient with children. :] I am a mom to 5 children, I am a school volunteer, and I have also been a Girl Scout leader and volunteer for the past 11 years.
I am American Red Cross First Aid and CPR certified and I have had background checks with the Girl Scout Council of Colonial Coast, York County Parks and Recreation, and the City of Newport News Parks, Recreation, and Tourism. My husband is a senior design engineer and has active security clearance. Safety and security are number one with us. We have great references.
