Full-time hours

For the past 2 1/2 years I have been an Executive Family Assistant/Nanny for a family with one son. I have demonstrated unparalleled dedication and I have been filled with passion to make a difference in their lives! I love what I do! I have 4 years of experience working for a family with 3 year old twin girls and a new sister who is 2 months old. I started when the twins were 4 months old. It has been a joy to have been a part of their lives. We have many activities during the day which include reading, art, music, dance, motor skill development and geography. We spend time each day outdoors taking walks and exploring nature. In addition, I worked for a family with twins who were born prematurely. I received special training by the neonatal intensive care unit for premature infants. I was with this family for 3 months and the mother was laid off. My greatest joy was raising my 4 children to become highly successful adults...a surgeon, an actuary, a director in city government and a digital animator. I am very proud if my children's accomplishments!

Hello, my name is Ana xx. Since the age of 12 I have been getting paid to babysit the children who lived in my neighborhood.

Now, 7 years later, I am still doing the same and let me tell you.. I have gotten good at it. I am able to wake up early and start work without a problem as well as work late hours, make meals for anytime of the day, get your child ready and care for as necessary. As far as certifications, I have AED, oxygen, blood born pathogens, first aid, and water safety as I was a lifeguard for 3 years. If you are interested please dont hesitate to contact me.
