I am 24 (almost 25) years old, and I grew up in Savannah, Georgia. I graduated from high school in 2008, and have 4+ years of college under my belt. I began babysitting children in my neighborhood at the age of 10, and it quickly became a love of mine. I am currently a full time photographer, but will be moving to Eugene, OR in early August for my husband to attend U of O, and will lose my photography client base - so back to nannying it is!
I started my very first nanny job at the age of 16, while I was still in high school. I continued with that job for several years during high school, and then after I graduated, I became a counselor at a overnight camp in North Carolina. I ended up working with fifteen 4 year old - 6 year old campers for the entire summer before I started college. During college, I nannied for two different families part time, and then one family (with 4 children, ages 3-14) full time for the last three years. I have experience with infants/newborns, toddlers, elementary age, and middle school. This year, I coordinated a tutoring program for children, and have several years experience in tutoring/helping with homework.
I am trained in first aid and CPR, but will need to renew my certification, as I have not taken the class in several years. I am also a strong swimmer, and have had countless years of swimming lessons. I am comfortable with working with special needs children, and children with learning differences.
