I'm highly dedicated and have been a professional Nanny for the last 10 years. I love children and taking care of them is what I do best! Being a Nanny is a pleasure and a privilege. Teaching children new skills and being a part of a child's life is what makes me happy. I'm loving, kind and patient, and the love that I receive from the kids that I take care of is the best reward I could ever get. I was a full-time Nanny for a family of four children (currently 12, 10, 8 and 5) for 7.5 years. The time came when everyone of my charges went to school full-time and I was not needed anymore. Since December 2012 I have worked part-time for a family in Mountain View with two lovely girls age 4 and 8 and a family in Los Gatos with a baby girl 18 months and her two older brothers 5 and 7 years old. I'm looking for a new Nanny position because one of the families is moving to Santa Rosa and the other doesn't need a nanny anymore. I'm run errands, do dinner prep, cook meals, laundry and light housekeeping. I help with homework, practice small motor skills, getting ready for pre-school and kindergarten such as teaching numbers, ABC's, reading and writing. I have extensive experience with children from age 7 month to teenager and can provide excellent references.

I have always loved being around children. I started babysitting at 13 years old and continued throughout high school. At 16 I became a certified swim instructor and have been teaching all age ranges of children 20-40 hours a week ever since, specializing in children with disabilities and special needs. While I was in college I worked at a foster home setting where I cared for children with disabilities. I would cook, clean, do laundry and all the domestic chores as well as support and care for the children under my supervision. I would do the bathing, changing, feeding, crafts and assist them with their education and learning. I have a lot of passion for kids and the experience to back it up.
