Cindy B. - Seeking Work in Heyworth

Full-time hours

Most recently have worked part-time at the local daycare. Worked with the 2's-3's, and caring for infants - which I loved! In July 2005 I moved to Falls Church VA to be a live-in nanny (through your agency) for a family; their two little ones were 7 and 4. I stayed through the end of December, at which time I accepted a housesitting assignment to spend winter in Vermont. From 2000-2002 I had the joy of caring for a little boy named Logan, in my home M-F, while his parents worked. I had him from the age of 3 mos-2 yrs. I raised my son, Paul, from the age of 3 when his dad and I divorced. I'm very proud of the man Paul has become; a Christian, and an Army paratrooper veteran of 2003-2006 in the middle east. He is safely home now in the civilian world and recently married. I'm a first time grandmother, to a little girl named Isabelle. I spent my teenage years babysitting to earn extra money, and also have cared for many children without pay over the years.
