Welcome to the kitchen, kids! I think cooking is a fun, creative way to learn, and think you’ll learn along the way that you are able to cook for yourselves! These comfort foods recipes are good for the soul.
As the founder and owner of Destination Sitters, LLC, an entrepreneur for over 35 years, and the mother of four children, I strongly believe that family comes first. Especially when traveling away from home, there is nothing like the peace of mind that comes from getting great professional help to care for your children.
I founded Destination Sitters, LLC in 2008 with the goal of helping people traveling in California (7 cities), Las Vegas and Orlando hire excellent sitters to help care for their family. As a mother, I understand how vital it is to match the right person with the right family. Our goal is not only to identify your needs, but to exceed your expectations! I have learned how to do that throughout my career, which has spanned 4 decades in running Destination Sitters. I also ran a successful interior design firm for 23 years, which led to my being published in major magazines, books and newspapers. In addition, I was a featured designer for 3 years on the highly-praised HGTV television show “Curb Appeal.”
Through of my life experiences, I now want to share my stories with you whether it’s travelling, cooking with your children or writing fiction children’s books to entertain them. I look forward to a new journey.
As the founder and managing director of Destination Sitters, LLC, a national hotel and event babysitting service, and the mother of two children, I strongly believe that family comes first. I personally needed babysitting when I moved to San Diego 14 years ago. Like most parents, I assumed there were standards for temporary babysitting; in reality, there are no state standards or licensing requirements for temporary babysitting. The idea for Destination Sitters was born! I wanted to Give Parents Peace of Mind® when traveling with their children, so I created strict screening requirements for the sitters we refer. There is nothing like the peace of mind that comes from getting great professional help to care for your children, especially when traveling away from home. I and my partners, along with our office staff, have that one goal in mind with everything we do.
Through the years of working with children, I have been inspired to write three books, and this blog for parents’ and children’s wellbeing. I believe the best way to teach a child is leading by example, with love, honesty, integrity, compassion, perseverance, and personal responsibility. Learning these values and teaching children that all women and men are equal will encourage them to dream big to be anything they want to be!
An entrepreneur for over 35 years, I previously spent years running a construction and design company with two offices in California and built million-dollar estates and remodeled existing ones. For three and half years, I was one of the primary designers on HGTV’s Curb Appeal. I have also been published in books, magazines and newspapers, and have been a featured designer in multiple showcase houses.
A great way to build a community of parents. Our blog offers tips on parenting, kids in the kitchen recipes,art & crafts, and traveling with children advice, which makes life a little easier and a whole lot more fun.
