My first childcare experience started when I was about 12 years old. I was the oldest at the my daycare providers and loved helping my "teacher" care for the younger children. I also have a younger sister named Ashley; whom I have cared for my entire life. At about age 15 I started staying home alone with her while my parents were working, or going out. I have always prepared snacks, light dinners and made sure she was content. Once I began to drive I would transport her to and from school and to any after-school activities. When we would get home I would assist with homework while I did my own. I have always planned fun activities for both of us. We take trips to the park, library, local hiking trails, and our favorite hobby arts and crafts. Secondly, I always make sure to clean and maintain any housekeeping needs, as well as providing a safe environment at all times. My goal as a nanny is to not only look after the children, but to be someone they can value as an important role model in their lives.

After graduating from CCSU in 2008 I taught as an 8th grade Reading/LA teacher for two years. I was laid off due to budget cuts, and chose to become a certified tutor and now a full-time nanny. I worked in Glastonbury with a wonderful family for over two years, and I have now been in West Hartford over a year watching two amazing toddlers. I am looking forward to a part-time nanny position (30-35 hours), but I am willing to look into a full-time nanny position (40 hours) if the opportunity presents itself. My weekends are kept busy during the winters as a local ski instructor in the children's program.
