I have worked for prominent people in the Movie Industry and Teachers and their families. The most recent was a lovely family from Agoura Hill. The little boy was 3.5mos. and the girl was 3 yrs old. I played with them at their level of comprehension and read to them, fixed them healthy snacks or lunch, took then to the local park, went for walks with them. Did the laundry, the dishes, cleaned the house and tiddied up after them. Changed diapers on the little one, rocked him to sleep for nap time, and gave him his bottle which I prepared. Changed bed linens 2xs and wk or more. Gave them lots of TLC, Hugs and kisses. They were my loves! The family has since moved out of state, for job opportunities. I keep intouch on Facebook.

I have always been passionate about children and love their energy and their curiosity. Since I can remember, I have always held babies in my arms or played with them and once I got older, I babysat so many beautiful kids, that have filled my heart with much joy. I am passionate about the development of infants/toddlers and young kids. I always strive to give each child a learning and exploring environment, that is safe, and filled with love, fun and encouragement. I have helped my husband raise his three children for the past 10 years (5,10,15). At 20 I left my hometown Berlin, Germany, to move to Connecticut for 4 months, to be a nanny to a lovely 3 year old boy, whom I have been taking care of since birth.

I am a nationally accredited child care professional. I began my career in the Waterford, Michigan public school district in the before/after school latch key program. I was quickly promoted to Director and enjoyed working with school age children for several years. I then began working in a child care center that was licesenced for 8 weeks to 6 yrs. I was a co-director of this particular center for 3 yrs. Unfortunately the economy gave us a hard blow and I left to find a position at a private academy. I was instrumental in implementing a music qnd movement program as well as puppetry and storytelling. These are my special areas of expertise that I continue to share with families. What I discovered after working so many years in schools and centers is that I really love being apart of a family.
