I have experience working with children since I was old enough to babysit and even before. I Worked as a child care provider at a Day care In Mason City, IA where I worked with ages 6 weeks to 12 years. I also worked one on one with 3 different children with special needs. I worked here for 2 years. In 2015 I explored Nannies4hire and found a wonderful family to work for in PA. I worked for them for 7 months before my contract was up. When I returned home finding work was hard for me until was asked to nanny for two doctors in the town I live while they studied to take their boards and further their profession. I nannied for them for 9 months. I am trained in CPR and First Aid and I am a Certified Medications Manager. My availability is very open and I am willing to travel. I currently work a part time job so if something were to come up I would need two weeks time before I am available. I'm hoping to possibly find another live in nanny position but a local position would work great as well.
