Gabi & Synthia
I am the proud mom of three beautiful children. I have a 9 year old sassy pre-teen and 3 year old boy/ girl twins. I currently work for Crown Ford here in Fayetteville. I graduated with a degree in Health Sciences and was a medical assistant for over three years.
The last four years I have been lucky enough to be a stay at home mom. I have over 10 years of personal childcare experience as well as experience with children with special needs.
I was born and raised in Rhode Island and moved to Florida when I was 25 years old. After 8 years in the sunshine state, my family and I decided to relocate to Fayetteville, North Carolina.
In my free time I enjoy going to the beach, staying active, being outdoors, spending time with my family, and making the best buffalo chicken dip you’ll ever have!
Fun Fact: In 2018, I climbed Mount Washington in New Hampshire with my friends and family!
