I have been a nanny for the last 17 years, and with the same family for 15 of those years. I have taken care of infants and make sure teens were making the right decisions for themselves. I have looked after two boys with ADD/ADHD and learned to be patient with them and help them stay on track and organized. I took the children to and from school, doctor appointments and any activities they had where their parents were unable to make it. I cooked meals, played games, did arts and crafts and read with them.

I have been nannying for about six years on and off. I have experience with all age groups of kids! I am currently CPR and First Aid (lifeguard) certified! What I love about working with kids is that you are constantly learning how to better your skills. Each child and family is different and you have to learn how you best fit into their daily life style.
