I love being around children and I know how important a good nanny is to both the children and the family. I feel very blessed with the opportunity to work doing something I love! When working with children, I love to engage them in fun activities and keep them active and learning, no matter their age. I love spending time with the kids both in and outside the home. Children have so much to offer and I truly enjoy being around them and enjoy building a bond with the family. I was a Volunteer for a local Austin family with quintuplets for a year. The babies were born in January of 2009 and I helped the family through their first year of life with the quints. Because the babies were born so prematurely, a NICU nurse was brought in to help train all volunteers on how to care for the babies upon arrival home from the NICU as well as what health concerns each baby had and how to manage them, such as low birth weight, Acid Reflux, hemangiomas, etc. As a volunteer, I was responsible for feeding, burping, changing, and rocking babies. I had to know how much each baby needed to eat, relative to his/her size and growth development, as well as document how much they ate, when they were changed, etc. As the babies got older, our care for them changed. A sleep routine was implemented as well as playtime and other developmentally appropriate activities. Along with these duties, I helped the parents and big sister adjust to life with five newborns by helping prepare bottles, folding laundry, coordinating other volunteer schedules, cleaning, and organizing. I was a nanny for a baby boy while his parents both worked full time. When I started, he was exclusively on formula; when I left, he was eating almost everything in sight and feeding himself! I loved watching him grow. I started out when I was in high school, watching him every afternoon from 2:00 p.m. on. Upon my graduation, his mother found out that she had both Multiple Sclerosis and an Ascending Aortic Aneurysm. She had to have Open Heart Surgery, so I moved in to become their live-in nanny. I cared for both mother and baby while she was recovering. I had all the responsibility of caring for him, plus household duties to maintain their home while the mother was out of commission. Once the mother was able to return to work, care for her son, and resume her normal daily activities, the parents felt he was old enough to be in daycare. A couple years later, after their daughter was born, I was the nanny for their daughter until she too was old enough for daycare. Most recently, I worked for a family in west Austin with two children, ages infant and pre-school. I mostly cared for the infant (feeding, changing, bathing, etc) but when he was sleeping I played with his sister and also did organization projects around the house as needed. I have been a babysitter in countless homes. I have experience with children ages preemie-preteen!

As the eldest of seven, I have had continual experience with children for most of my life. I was the live-in babysitter for all of my siblings, taking care of them on date nights, during the day and helping with the household duties. I became very responsible at a young age and took on other tasks to help my mother around the house. I have experience in cooking, cleaning, yard work, laundry, tutoring and general household duties. I grew up in a large, yet close family who were well disciplined and organized. At 13, I began babysitting for family friends in the area. I have worked for many families for a number of years and was always asked back for other jobs during the year. Families usually consisted of families of three, with children ranging from infant to age 9. Not only did I watch the children, but organized crafts, games, cleaned up after them, became familiar with bedtime routine, cooked and light home cleaning. I continued working with children during the summer months, coaching a large swim team with ages from 5-18. I organized practice schedules and gave helpful criticism to each individual swimmer. I was also the manager of group/private swim lessons for younger children. I am CPR/Lifeguard certified and am always willing to use this to teach private lessons to any individual. I have volunteered for an all-girls camp for three consecutive years. As the head counselor, I organized the day for a group of 150 girls allowing time for games, dance, crafts and meal times. This day camp was a wonderful experience and allowed me to work with girls grades 4th through 7th . I became a weekend nanny for a family in college. Between taking classes and my many activities, I looked after a six-year-old girl. She had severe food allergies and was allowed to make her restricted meals. Her parents worked full time at an art gallery and executive of a local bank. I picked her up from school, events and her parents' social events. I was also hired out to work at various business socials, in order to watch the families children and keep them engaged and entertained.

I am an experienced nanny so I know what dress is best for dollie, what car is the fastest or how to soothe crying baby! I also am a pretty good boo-boo kisser and a awesome sunggler! I am that someone to play outside when the weather is good, make a snowman when its cold, color in coloring books and make pillow forts when its rainy (or go outside to stomp in the puddles.. Im not afraid to get dirty :) and do projects for holidays. I make sure to incorporate music, reading, arts and crafts, playing outside (weather permitting) or learning colors, letters, shapes (if age appropriate) into daily conversations. I take an interest in them to help develop mentally and althletically (Im still young.. I can keep up wtih the little ones:) I like to go on outings whether it be a picnic or to going to the library for story-time. I started as a mother's helper at 13, grew into a babysitter/nanny and after high-school Au paired in London for a little bit and still going strong at 24. I have had live-in and live-out positions with amazing families over the years. Most of my experience is with infants/toddlers. I am an outgoing, honest, friendly, easy going/down to earth girl who is always caught smiling! I have a good head on my shoulders to make the right decisions. I am also patient and understanding which is crucial with child care. I think my caring and playful nature draws children to me and I like to think that the relationships I have with all the children I have cared for over the years, I have somehow enriched their lives. I enjoy working with children and their endless energy and laughter. I think they are pride and joy and so fun to be around. I love interacting with them and teaching them things (You can learn so much from them as well). I interact with them on the floor, anything that nurses their curiosity. But most importantly your child's safety is first and foremost. I am confident in my abilities as a nanny/babysitter. I find this job fulfilling, challenging and rewarding. My responsibilities as a nanny will include providing your children with kindness and love. I wont be just a babysitter. You become a sister, friend and mentor, maybe I need to add that Ill be your child's personal cook, nurse, teacher, chauffeur, stroller pusher too! :) All in all, I will treat them as if they were my own.
