Hi, I believe that children are to be nurtured and treasured. I became a nanny because my own children were the center of my life and I found that I interacted well with them and their friends. As they got older, I began a career that allows me to continue using the care skills I developed as a mom. The youngest of my four is now a teen so I derive a great deal of satisfaction from continuing to care for babies and young children through my work. I am college educated, a non-smoker and I'm CPR and First Aid certified. I am punctual, professional, and thoroughly dependable. I believe in doing more than what the job requires and being flexible and extra helpful whenever possible. I am down to earth and fun-loving, creative, enthusiastic, and devoted to those in my care. I believe in the golden rule and approaching everything with a glass half-full mentality. My background includes classroom teaching as well as volunteering with educational organizations. I'm now in my eighth year as a nanny. Please call or email me for more complete information, great references, and/or to schedule an interview. Best wishes on finding great care for your precious one.

I worked with the family in UT. The mother was pregnant with her second set of twins and was put on bedrest. I took care of her 3 sons, Cody 4, Steven 2, and Luke 2. Daily, I would prepare breakfast, lunch, and snacks. My days would consist of taking the boys to play somewhere, running errands for the family, light cleaning, light dinner preparation, and sometimes afterwork babysitting. I really enjoyed the high energy these wonderful boys had, and would still be working with this family if I had not moved back to Georgia.
