Connie K. - Seeking Work in Waikiki

22.85 / hour

I have 20+ years of experience with both being a Baby Nurse and Professional Nanny. I have worked with 22 sets of twins so far. 4 sets of which I have signed on with for the first years of their lives. I have worked with single babies, several toddlers and school age/teen children as well. I am First Aid/CPR certified. I hold a Registered Medical Assisting degree of which I used in the Pediatric department several years ago before I began to do care in private homes. I have such a passion for children as I do not consider any assignment I take a job, it is my career. I jump right in and can easily adapt to what the schedule is or if need be I can get a schedule going. I am very consistent and believe structure is the best thing for children to thrive on. I have a great personality with great communications skills. I am dependable and hard working. I am a also a self starter. I like to begin with a family and stay with them to be there as all the children grow. I have worked in positions both of solo Nanny and fully staffed homes. I have live-in and live-out experience. I have excellent references. I have worked in the states of Hawaii, California and Florida. My philosophy is that I as the Nanny does everything possible related to the children(laundry, dishes, cleaning their rooms, bedding, etc.) so when the children are with mom and dad it is quality time and your not worrying about anything else but having a great time with the children. I have built great after care relationships along the way with families I stayed with for years at a time. I look forward in building more. Thank You,  Connie
