Full-time hours

I have recently moved to St Petersburg after many years of working for a prestigious household agency in southern Connecticut. While in Connecticut, I had the great satisfaction of working with several wonderful families with children ranging in age from 2-18. With each family, I assisted with childcare, cooking, housekeeping, errands, finances and overall home management. These experiences have shaped me into a strong, capable household manager who understands the intricacies of different child behaviors and lifestyle choices. With my most recent position, I cared for three children ages 11, 14, and 15. I worked with this family over the course of 6 years, and became a resident member of their family. This long-term position enabled me to expand my personal qualifications to becoming more than a nanny. The family’s youngest son had learning disabilities and required additional care and education in order to reach the success he is enjoying today. I organized many of his tutoring sessions and offered guidance as needed to ensure he was meeting his greatest potential. For the older children, I provided care as needed, as well as transportation to after-school and extra-curricular activities. I was also an Art teacher (pre-k through gr.8) for several years in a private school and a pre- school teacher.

I was recently nannying for a 2 month old (when I started) and a 3 year old. It has been a great experience with another great family. I worked afternoons, nights and weekends for them fixing the kids dinner and do their bed time routine. On the weekends I help the family with the kids activities if they have any or care for/entertain them if they don't. In college (during the summer) I was a live-in Nanny for a family in Boston. It was a great experience and we became very close. They have 3 little boys ages 5, 7, and 9. I have babysat since I was 15. Caring for infants up to preteens. I was a regular babysitter for many of the families in my community. I love kids and am very patient with them. I am the second oldest in my family and have grown up helping take care of my little sister and 10 of my younger cousins. I also have been a coach for an under 10-year-old team and a 6th grade team. I also worked for a summer day camp program. I was a group leader and responsible for about 20 children daily. I have also worked at an in home daycare with children from 1 year old to 10 years old.

I have been a live-in nanny for two different families. One for 8 years on and off and the other for one year. I've also had several live-out nanny positions for children of all ages. I have been responsible for pick-up and drop-off during the school day, preparing and serving healthy and balanced meals, entertainment, assisting with homework, bath time, creating interesting and imagination-provoking activities when school is out and for caring for the children as the parents would if they were home. I always respect the parents wishes and care for children with positive affection, honest encouragement, humor, open communication, and all the while setting clear boundaries to ensure their safety. I have experience with children of all ages from newborn babies to pre-teenagers.

My past experiences as a caregiver and nanny have enriched my life in ways I never could have imagined. Having the opportunity to positively impact the lives of children and help them grow is truly rewarding. With my Psychology major just a few months from completion, I have concentrated my emphasis on adolescent development coursework to guide me in becoming a more effective influence on the young lives I touch. As a person who embraces life, I have a passion for sharing knowledge and experiences. Being a live-in nanny would provide ample opportunity to build trust and connect with the children, which is so important for them to learn and feel fulfilled. In addition, my creative nature not only makes day-to-day learning fun, but also helps to create an environment where kids develop a variety of skills for problem solving.

Hello! Here's my story, in a nutshell: I was a nanny for a family in Ohio for one year. They relocated to Tennessee and asked me to move with them. I accepted and loved spending time with their four children (ages 4, 3, 2, and infant when I left) over the course of three years. I graduated from college and moved back to Ohio, so I was no longer able to care for their children. My undergraduate major was Psychology and my minor was Education. I recently completed a master's degree in Marriage & Family Therapy in Ohio. I recently moved to St. Petersburg, FL as I was offered a full-time counseling job. I am looking to nanny/babysit on the side, to help pay off my student loans. I'm willing to work occasionally as needed for date nights and such, or even be scheduled for a few hours a week. Please send me a message if you would like to talk more and schedule a time for me to meet you and your children. Thank you!
