Hello! I am a 27 year old woman who loves children and has had over 13 years of babysitting/nannying experience. I came across your ad and was so excited to hear you are looking for someone like me for your children. I absolutely love spending time with children and have excellent references. I was recently laid off of my Administrative job and have decided to take a break from the corporate world to do what I love! I am ok with part time or full time hours, I have a clean driving record, and am ready to start when you are. I live in Concord but I am willing to commute. I am excited to meet your family and I hope to hear from you soon! - Megan

As for my previous work with children, I have been a babysitter/nanny for multiple families throughout the past 7 years. The ages vary from new born to 15 years old. My last job was a full time nanny for a family I'd been with for a 2 years. I absolutely loved my job but I am always ready for a change of my regular routine. I also worked, while a student for 4 years in high school as a special education assistant. I really grew a passion for working with all types of children. I love expanding my knowledge of different families, cultures and meeting new people! I currently run the California accounts for a company and have quite a flexible schedule.

There is no chore I will not do, including cleaning the refrigerator organizing the pantry and the garage. I will stay late, if needed and I will change my schedule for my families.
