Richelle H. - Seeking Work in Ashton

11.42 / hour

I have loved and adored children all of my life. My mother grew up teaching exercise classes at our local YMCA and I was right there next to the teacher in the nursery rocking, changing diapers, feeding and caring for the babies/toddlers when I was no more than 7 years old! I come from a large family and began my first nanny job in 6th grade watching my 2 younger cousins who were only 5 months and 2 1/2 years old several days a week after school. From there I began taking on many babysitting jobs all through my teen years and upon graduating college. I was a camp counselor for a summer at the xx and was in charge of a group 20-30 3rd-4th graders from 8-5pm daily with one other counselor. I was also a nanny for a family in Oconomowoc, WI (the hometown I grew up in) during my college summers and those kids were ages 10 & 14 when I began. My parents adopted 3 children ages 6, 8 & 10 years old from Ethiopia in 2009 while I was renting a room at my parents house and played a significant role in helping raise them until 2015 when I moved to Ashton, Idaho with my husband. I am currently enrolled in online school to become a health and wellness coach and am looking for a part-time (possibly full-time) position as a nanny in the Driggs/Victor, Idaho community since that is where my husband and I like to spend most of our time as well as ski at Grand Targhee in Alta, WY. My husband works in Driggs so this is why nannying in Driggs/Victor would be ideal. All in all, I love children and would be honored to be a nanny for a family who is looking for the help:)
