Work Experience

Stay at Home Mom

Naples, FL

2020 to Present

I went on FMLA in September of 2019 to come back to my hometown of Marco Island to be with my father

as he was dying. Four days after he passed, my two year old daughter had a stroke and was in the ICU

for 11 days at the Miami children's hospital. Once she was released, my family and I packed up all of our

belongings and came back home, to Marco Island. I have since been a stay-at-home mom while helping

my daughter recover and my mom following my dad's death.
