single mom relocating from pdx to bay
I am a health & happiness loving single working mama to my 4 year
old son, Shilo. We're relocating to the Bay area (the Dr I work
for is leaving the practice), thinking either North or East bay. Any
guidance, help or advice would be incredibly appreciated! I
am a Clinical Aesthetician & Medical Assistant, specializing
in Plastic Surgery. Here's my list of necessity & logistics
all on very limited finances...
**We will be making an exploratory trip down May 5-14th
(just Shilo & I). Need desperately to find comfortable
Then starting mid June/July- Housing- 1 or 2 month temp
sublet/rental/house share, or more permanent-- Fairfax, Mill
Valley, San Rafael, Novato, Gerstle Park, Sauselito,
Berkeley, Albany- max $1100-1200/month
Work- Skin Care, Medical Assisting, reputable Plastic
Surgeons? I'm also an experienced nanny & waitress
Preschools- Reggio Amelia, Nature/Art based, Healthy food,
ok w/food sensitivities, full day/working hours. Any scholarships available?
Also, would LOVE to have either a housemate, child care
exchange, or provide room for help with Shilo (bigger
place/more rent in that scenario)
Planning on using POD in storage until we get into more long
What neighborhoods should I be looking at? Accessible, fresh, healthy groceries are also important to me.
Thank You Kindly!
