I started taking care of my cousins when I was eight years old. I started babysitting on weekends, etc. when I was 12 and then I took care of children as a full time summer job when I was 13, 14, and 15. I took care of the three children across the street who where 3 weeks, 2 and 4 years when I started taking care of them. I continued taking care of children thru high school along with my other jobs to earn extra money. When my first two daughters were 2 and 3 years old I took care of two little boys who were also 2 and 3 years old. I potty trained one of them. I have taken care of children for friends and family for as long as I can remember. I raised four children and took care of my two granddaughters from birth until age 7 full time. They are now 10 and 12.

When I was 15 my mom gave birth to my sister. This had me be the only teen in the neighborhood who had infant experience; I was very busy. When my own children were born I was at ease and fully competent tending to their needs and raising them into healthy, caring, beautiful, productive adults. As a mature female I bring lots of love and patience, fun and creativity to each situation. Children learn through play; life should be happy. I am here to expand that, with children as well as adults. Cleaning? Cooking? Pets? No problem! In my own home as well as in others I prefer using natural cleaning products and eating as healthy as possible. In my quiet time I practice yoga, sew, write poetry, occasionally bead. I am fond of baking, gardening, walking and playgrounds. Exploring new things delights me. I am also a Master level Reiki practitioner. I am seeking a family who needs assistance in the form of extra heart, hands and help, preferably 20+ hours per week. I am available for live-in or live-out. Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.

Gosh where do I start... I have worked and been around kids my whole life. I currently work for Ojai Unified School District in Special Education. I work with kids of all ages specializing with autism. I write individual lesson plans and work daily with life skills. I have previously worked as a nanny for a wonderful family with four children aging from 3-11. I grocery shopped and prepared all means for the children. Drove the children to and from school and sports. Helped with homework and academics. Most importantly, provided the children with endless amounts of care and love, filled with countless park days and frequent visits to local libraries. Always taking advantage of what our local communities has to offer. Before becoming a Nanny, I was a lead two year old teacher at xx Preschool in Ventura.
