Hello, my name is Kristie. I have been professionally nannying for 5 years. I have five brothers and sisters that I have cared for the majority of time growing up because of working parents. When I was 10 years old, I started caring for my brother who was born with severe special needs. I have been the trusted and called on babysitter for every family friend with children for years. I cared for 2 children in Northern Oregon, and then cared for 4 children ages 1, 4, 6, and 10 in Southern California. Finally able to pursue my love for horses by working towards an equine degree, I recently moved to Lexington, KY from my home in Southern California. I am currently caring for two children full time in Versailles, KY. They are ages 6 and 10. I am sad to leave them but unfortunately I need to find a position with more stable hours.

I have worked in an in-home daycare with children aged 6 weeks to 4 years I loved helping them learn new things and do activities outside and arts amd crafts they had such amazing personalities and made me realize I wanted to work with children! I've also worked in an actual daycare and I am currently a nanny for a family I've worked with for about 4 years! They have 4 children but I mainly have the 14 year old who is autistic and the 7 year old. I pick them up from school, do homework, go to the park, make them dinner and get them ready for bed ect. I'm leaving this job because I currently live in Tampa and I am moving back home to Kentucky!
