HI There! I am Alyssa, a fun loving 23 year old who absolutely loves kids. I love what I do and adore children in everyway! I get a joy out of seeing them grow, play, and learn. Im caring, responsible and hard working. I always treat the kids I watch as if they were my own because I understand how valuable children are to their parents. I have worked as a nanny for the last five years and have enjoyed every minute of it. I have worked both part time and full time and as a live in and live out nanny as well. I have worked with kids from the age of newborn to 9 years old. I have done everything from getting the children ready, to cooking and feeding, to driving to school and miscellaneous activities, to grocery shopping, to cleaning, to laundry, and of course to the fun stuff like playing games, going to the park, coloring, crafts and much more. I love my job and I am very hands on and involved. I have a California drivers licence, my own safe vehicle and I am a very careful driver. Being a nanny isn't just a job for me, its something I really enjoy doing and take pride in. I love being apart of childrens lives and hope to find a family to become apart of!

I have been working for about a year for a wonderful family but they are relocating. The dad is a professional player that is going to play in New York this coming season. The past year has given me a wonderful opportunity to travel around the country with the family and the team and learn a lot about the U.S., but I am content to stay in one place as well. I have excellent references from “my” family, for whom I looked after their now 2 year old adorable daughter and also references from other families. I am 33 years old single woman from Brazil with a BA degree and I am CPR certified. I speak fluent Portuguese, can communicate in Spanish and have usable English and I am improving each day as I attend evening English classes. I live in Alamo with my sister and her husband and my two young nephews that I adore and have been helping to raise. I am an excellent driver with a California driver's license, a clean driving record and a reliable and insured car. I have a valid U.S. visa and no immigration issues or concerns.
