I have encountered so many wonderful children and families!!! I have been a Nanny for infants through 11 year old triplets! With each family, I gain more skills and knowledge to bring to the next family I join. I am a supporter of healthy attachment and positive reinforcement. I love being able to help a child gain confidence and independence by helping them feel safe in any environment. There is never a dull moment when I am in the home. I love to allow the children to participate in hands-on activities with me, whether it be around the home or in the great outdoors. Being social is a huge part of healthy development, so I believe in going outside daily. Parents frequently ask me “Where are you all going today?” because it is rare that we stay home the entire day. I love to cook, bake, read, sing, do crafts, travel, visit museums, go to parks, and so much more with the kids in my care. I teach baby signs, have potty trained in as little as 2 days, speak 3 languages, am a Certified Babywearing educator, and value modeling a healthy lifestyle for the children I care for. There is so much that I haven’t included. I guess I will save the rest until I meet you and your family!

I have performed duties such as changing diapers, spending quality play time with the kids, staying on a daily schedule with nap time and eating times, going over whatever homework the child may have, taking the children to practices, appointments, etc, and much more. I absolutely love child care and have a passion and patience for kids! I was a Division 1 collegiate athlete at Ball State University for 4 years. I majored in Psychology and Child Development.

Besides raising my 4 daughters, I cared for multiple children in my home from 1981 to 1990. I loved them dearly and am still in contact with several kids. I am now occasionally caring for my grandchildren. I love child care and I have just ended 10 years as an elementary school as an aide. I like working with kids and help them to reach their best.
