In addition, I am a great cook I took one year of culinary school classes so I love to cook and prep dinners and oddly enough I enjoy cleaning, organizing toys, doing dishes and laundry :) I am a very efficient and reliable shopper and errand runner for any type of errands. I am also not a plop in front of TV nanny!

I use to work for an Indian family in Simi Valley. The two babies were close family friends which i potty trained both and half the day I looked over a six year old when he came home from school. I watched over them and made them breakfast and lunch. I also did light house keeping. They didn't need me anymore because the grandmother came to live with them. I would love to find another loving family.

My mother has ran an in-home daycare since my older sister was born in 1989. Ever since I was old enough my mom let me help out with anything possible and that then turned into me being her helper as a side job throughout my schooling up until I graduated High School. I also babysat the children she cared for when their parents wanted/needed to go out on weeknights or weekends, after my mothers hours. I have extensive experience with children of all ages and am highly capable of taking care of any of their needs.
