I love working with all ages of children, and have been a nanny for the past five years (including being with one family for three years). I have great references, am trustlined and have CPR/First Aid certification. I am looking for a long-term position, but would also be interested in the right short-term position and/or occasional babysitting as well. I am more than willing to do light housekeeping and errands as well. I am 32 and have a lot of energy, and enjoy taking the children to the park, zoo, etc. My rates are negotiable depending on the hours, location, and number of children.Please contact me if you would like to set up an interview or if you have any questions for me!

Hi, I am a freshman in college majoring in communications and hope to go into public relations. I have 3 amazing nieces who are honestly my best friends, getting to watch them grow into amazing, strong, confident little ladies, has honestly been such a blessing. I also got the opportunity to nanny two amazing girls this year, being their nanny has taught me so much about myself and responsibility. I loved being able to be apart of their life and was sad when I moved away but hope o find another family that I could grow and thrive with. I have open availability and would love to talk with you about a schedule that works for you.
