I have been babysitting for 7 years and have been a nanny for about a year. I have worked in the nursery at my church for over 3 years. I was a traveling nanny for almost a year. I was in the teaching academy while in high school. I was part time employed by a Positive Behavior Corporation, which means I assist in behavior analyzing and correcting behaviors of special needs children. I also was CPR, First Aid, and lifeguard certified and could easily regain that certification with a simple test if needed. My heart is overjoyed by a babies pure happiness and giggles and would love to make a positive impact on your child life!
