Palm Desert, CA Nannies

Jackie S. - Seeking Work in Palm Desert

Hourly rate14.28 / hour

I have had several nanny positions, both live-in and live-out. Upon graduating from high school, I moved to New Jersey and was a live-in nanny for a family with two children; ages 2 and 8. After living back east for a year, I realized that I loved being a nanny so much but am quite partial to being out west, which is closer to family, so I accepted a live-in nanny position in Utah caring for 2 girls, ages 18 months and 4. Those two girls are now heading off to college and we still keep in touch via Facebook! I took a hiatus from nannying and pursued my undergraduate studies and got married. While continuing with my education and working on a graduate degree, I became fortunate enough to work as a nanny again. I recently worked part-time for two different families simultaneously while finishing up my graduate degree in Las Vegas, Nevada. I love both of these families and grew very attached to the children. I'd like to think that the kids were quite attached to me, too! One family had 3 children, ages 1, 2, and 5. The other family had twin baby boys. The twins were 4 months old when I began caring for them and it was a pure joy to see them change and develop. I moved to Palm Desert, California due to my husband's profession and it was very hard to say good-bye to both of these families. The best compliment I received from both sets of parents is how appreciative they are that I cared for their children like they were my own. That kind of trust means so much to me.
