I have been around children my whole life. I am one out of nine kids so I got a head start on taking care of kids. I started volunteering at Cosi and the Library when I was 12, in both places I quickly become the lead volunteer I achieved and exceeded the goals set for me. In 2012 I started working in a Daycare as the secondary teacher in the toddler room and I subbed throughout the rest of the daycare. After working there for about 7 months they decide to make me the lead teacher for the same toddler room. I worked there for a total of 1 1/2 years before I decided I wanted to work as a Nanny. From July 2013 To February 2014 I worked as a Part time Nanny with a wonderful family, I went back to working as a primary teacher in a daycare for 9 months in 2014-2015. From 2015-2016 I worked as a live in nanny/household manager for a wonderful family in Kansas. I spent 13 months with them and their 4 children doing all the cooking, cleaning, and organizing as needed. Currently I work as a live in nanny in Illinois for a single father with 2 boys, I cook completely paleo for them as well as keep the boys on schedule. I want to move close to Quantico, Virginia in April.
