Working with children has always been a passion of mine. I began babysitting when I was 12 years old for family and friends and my passion for working with children has only grown. In high school I was a youth cheer coach for three years. I was fortunate to start with a group of girls and follow them through the years. Being able to help them and watch them grow was an amazing experience. I feel it is vitally important to be a positive role model for young children and encourage them in everything they do. I also worked at Chuck E. Cheese in high school, gaining experience working with kids through hosting birthday parties, as well as interacting with kids in the game-room and restaurant environment. Volunteering at a city run preschool in my community also allowed me to interact with children in a learning environment. Children bring such joy to every situation, and bring a fun and spontaneity to any workday.

My first experience with being a nanny was on a part time basis during the summers where I would be taking care of my newborn cousin, this went on for several years until he grew old enough to attend summer activities or stay alone. I would also be his babysitter during the evenings and weekends during the school years frequently staying overnight when his parents went on trips.

I love babysitting, when everything else in life is falling apart, children always find a way to make us smile. I am fun, able to go with the flow of your little ones as they jump around. I understand when they are seeking to explore, asking constant questions, with a hunger and curiosity about life. Most important is listening, engaging, and enjoying the most special years of their life. Learning about numbers, the ABCs and shapes are very important, playing is important too. I always find ways to enjoy the activities that the children enjoy. I give consideration, guidance and protection to every child I take care. I am very caring and full of energy. I have experience not only as Mother but also as a Nanny and a Babysitter for many years. I am CPR, First Aid and AED certified by the Fire department of Laguna Beach. I can babysit at your house or my house.
