  • Description


    My son and I are fun and enjoy meeting new people. we like to cook, play, listen to music, play games and piano, go for picnics and be outdoors as much as possible. We are a busy small family that needs someone who is proactive and ready to help out around the house and with our daily life.

    Can you multi-task? Do you have life experiences and know how to be helpful? Do you like children? What's your skill and work experiences? These are things that I would welcome hearing about when you write me.

    It's a balance between work and play. We need some domestic help, someone who is authentically themselves and is comfortable engaging and leading and guiding my son and helping out around our home.

    I have a background in activism, human and civil rights, children & women's rights, etc. I am a busy event planner and entertainment agent. I have a busy home office and your organizational skills would be an asset.

    I love yoga, mediation, reading and dancing and enjoy studying people ... but currently my focus is on patience, find life's efficiencies and seeing the joy in my son's face.

    We live in Daly City, near the BART train and bus right outside SF... We have a view of the Pacific Ocean and are about 5 minutes driving from San Francisco, Not far from Fort Funston or the San Francisco zoo. Our neighborhood is near Westlake shopping mall and there is plenty of easy public transportation.

    We have a very comfortable home with a backyard, laundry on site a small deck and happy plants.

    I can use the most help with someone assisting me, Basic administrative stuff, and computer help, also, domestic help; cooking, cleaning, organizing, etc), garage, projects, ie, cleaning/tidying closets, cabinets.

    I have an adorable, kind and fun 9 year old son (who lives with me part-time) who is very sweet and welcoming and we can arrange for some meals to be together but some will definitely be on your own. If you know piano, he is new with it and loves it!!! music in general is great, yet you need to know how to teach an energetic child!

    Individual women welcome ... age range i'm open, I just need focused women who are ready to assist and are high-functioning people. Life experience is a plus please note I will ask for references .. schedule will vary yet approximately 4 to 5 hrs a day. I would like to skype or whats app prior to committing.
