Im a very mature, responsible, fun, active, patient, & loving nanny who truly loves her job. I have about 10 years of experience caring for newborns & children! I began care giving at a young age. My experience level has benefited the families Ive cared for, & myself. Ive worked at a daycare center & some social, family events. I have been a nanny to 6 great families, including a celeb singer/songwriter and her baby son -- And that is not even including babysitting or all the work I have done helping out friends and family with their little ones!

Its important to me that parents feel comfortable, and included in all parts of the day. I also send photos and texts to mom and dad, to better communicate with them. A typical day with me will include a ton of fun! I love making arts and crafts, singing, pretend play, building blocks, puzzles, sports, and taking walks to the playground. Of course there is plenty of time for homework, or any other educational, productive activities. I am a great cook, and have made countless meals for each and every family. In the past Ive been asked to run errands, shop, clean, and organize schedules. These are things I enjoy doing, and Im more than capable of efficiently getting it all done. You can trust that your child will always be safe with me. I am also respectful to your rules and your home at all times. I believe I can handle any task given to me. Being a nanny has always been a big part of my life. I love kids and caring for them is what I do best!

During my first couple years of college I was a nanny for three children who ranged from 1 year to 6 years of age. I also nannied for two other children whom were 10 years of age, and 7 years of age. When I left my first family, I nannied for two other children. Their son was only about 4 months, and their daughter was about 5 years of age. I had already been babysitting since I was 13 years old, so in between my regular nannying schedule, I babysat for several different families as requested. Usually each family had more than one child, and the ages ranged from 6 months to 11 years of age.
