Hello! I'm Lani! I'm a soon to be Pediatric Physical Therapist and am hoping to nanny prior to beginning my career in September working with kids in healthcare. I'm compassionate, fun, and full of energy! I'm originally from Burlington, Iowa and my fiancé and I are moving to Des Moines in May.

Growing up in a family of six children, I've always known I wanted to work with children--there was never a dull moment, and when my little brother was diagnosed with type one diabetes, life got even crazier. But we adjusted and I wouldn't have wanted it any other way.

Ever since I was little, I've been playing music. I've learned piano, guitar, and ukulele, and I love to sing! I love to draw and get my hands messy with arts and crafts.

I've worked in a professional daycare which is where I got my First Aid/CPR certification. I cared for mostly toddlers and infants and saying goodbye was one of the hardest things I have ever done. It gave me a love and appreciation for each child and their specific, individual needs which develop at such a young age.

I'm outgoing, creative, and I love caring for children. I hope you will consider letting me serve your family!

Hi! My name is Carina and I am a student at the University of Iowa, majoring in chemistry. I am 19 years old, but I have about 7 years of experience working with children. In the past, I have been a summer camp counselor, an after-school program counselor, a teaching assistant at a school for kids with special needs, a babysitter, and a nanny. I would love to meet with you to see if I am a good match for you and your family!
