Managed all household duties in a 2,800 square feet home, including meal preparation, light tidying and housework, grocery shopping, errands, and organization projects. Kept the girls organized and on-task with their after-school routines, coordinated carpools for them and their friends to a full schedule of weekly sporting and academic activities, and supervised poolside safety during group playdates.
Ensured a stable environment throughout the entirety of the stay-at-home and virtual learning mandates in 2020 and 2021, while both parents attended to duties at their respective hospitals and pediatrics practice. The girls are now 15 and 18. However, I continue to help with meal prep, grocery shopping, and pet taxi services.
