My name is Susy Caracas and I am a single mother of two young adults and a resident of Orange County.
For the last 15 years, I have served as a Nanny, Postpartum Doula, Certified Adv. Newborn Care Specialist, NCS CACHE and currently working on my Lactation Educator Certification.
I achieved my Bachelor's Degree in Communications with a specialty in Public Relations and served as a Spanish teacher at the high school level in Mexico for 3 years.
For the last year, I have served as the US Nanny Association Director for the Hispanic Community where among many volunteer activities I have the responsibility of organizing the Annual Conference for Parents and Nannies in Spanish 2020.
I am the creator of the Nannies Hispanas Facebook group.
I am also one of the founders and Chief Experience Officer of the Nanny Sitter Education Fund, a non-profit organization that awards educational scholarships to anyone dedicated to child care and interested in continuing their education.
And last but not least, I am a Postpartum Doula Volunteer at Joy in Birth Foundation giving physical and emotional support to all the mothers whom do not possess the financial resources but as new mother also deserves support in the first few days after giving birth.
Due to all my experiences, I know first-hand the need in our Hispanic community to bring the NCS course in our language and I know that this will open many doors for our community and bring about the higher level of care and knowledge for our clients and babies.
My name is Kelly Denisse Rodas. I was born in the city of Los Angeles, California, but my life has been spent between LA and Guatemala where my parents are from.
I have been happily married for 5 years and we currently reside in the city of Los Angeles.
I am Nanny, Postpartum Doula, Certified Adv Newborn Care Specialist, NCS CACHE and working on my Lactation Educator Certification. All this achieved during my 11 years of experience in the children's care industry.
For a time while in Guatemala, I worked as a secondary level teacher.
I have always been involved in supporting the community locally, but for about a year I have been part of the US Nanny Association being a promoter of the Hispanic Community and an assistant volunteer in the production of material for social networks.
I am one of the administrators of the Facebook group “Nannies Hispanas” with an approximate 500 nanny group members. The mission of this group is to empower and bring about information and resources so that they too can continue with their education, their personal and professional goals, all in an environment of respect and friendship.
It is because of all this, that I was passionate about bringing to life an evidence-based course that meets the standards required to be a Newborn Care Specialist training course in Spanish, approved and validated by NCS Association. Seeing that there was none of this type in our language and the great need and desire that the Hispanic community had to learn, “Cuidando Angeles NCS Training” was born and what better than in our own native language where we can understand our customs and traditions and continue to foster a community of support while bringing the best care to our babies and clients.
