Hi, there! I know you have options when it comes to who will care for your children and I want you to know that they'll be in good hands with me! While in college I nannied on and off and absolutely loved it! After graduation, my husband and I moved to Derby where I worked as a para-educator at Swaney Elementary School. There I taught children who have special needs and a variety of behavioral requirements. I love being apart of their journey as they discover who they are and what this big world is all about!
I've have spent the last 10 years working for my mother at her preschool and since my husband and I have returned to Lawrence, I have been the art director at Creative Minds. I understand that little minds have a big sense of adventure so I love reading, crafting, and field trips. I know your child needs time to explore in order to learn and I embrace that your child is an individual that needs encouragement and support!
I'm reliable, I have a reliable car, and I can provide references if you'd like! My goal is for you and your family to be as comfortable as possible with me so please let me know what I can do to help you with that! I'd love the opportunity to help you and your family by genuinely caring for your little ones!

I am currently looking for a full-time nanny position. I am 24 years old and will be moving to Lawrence, Kansas in July 2018. I attended Santa Fe College in Gainesville for 3 years, at which I earned my Associate of Arts degree and my Certificate in Medical Coding and Billing. I have extensive experience in childcare. I have been babysitting / a nanny for over 10 years and I have worked with children as a teacher in activities such as Vacation Bible School for several years. I have a passion for teaching and learning from children, which is why I am interested in being a full-time nanny.

My most recent position has been full time with a set of boy/ girl twins. They were just 1 when I started and they will be turning 3 in May. I have had quite a bit of experience with newborns as well. Within the past 3 years, I have taken care of both of my nephews from the time they were born until they were 1.5 years old and 6 months old.

Working with children and giving them opportunities to learn and grow gives me great joy. I am comfortable and have had experience with children of all ages. Please feel free to contact me with any questions!
