I have 8+ years of nannying experience. The first family I nannied for was a 6 year position, only stopping due to the age of the daughter. I have nannied for families mostly with toddlers/young children but have experience with newborn to 16 years of age. I have done everything from swimming lessons, art classes, library group and co-op preschool. I love to take my kiddos to the zoo, park, go on walks, do art projects and play. I believe that you can have fun and learn at the same time. I strive to give my clients the best care possible. If the kids are down for nap time, I always do light cleaning and am willing to do meal prep, etc. if my clients would like.

I am a grandmother to seven precious grandchildren. All are the loves of my life. To me they are the most precious gifts God gave this world. I always enjoyed playing with them. We would walk to the park together, play different games together and when they became sleepy I would snuggle with them and we would take turns reading a book. I enjoyed holding them close, singing and rocking them to sleep.
