Personally, I am the oldest of five children, including twin brothers who are just 20 mo. younger than me. I grew up around other children, babysitting frequently, starting as an early teen. Since then, while accomplishing personal, academic and other goals, I've continued to provide childcare in various settings. I have several different resources to provide. These individuals have known me in different ways and for various lengths of time. Each one, however, is relevant to providing child care.

have a lot of experience taking care of children. I am one of 5 kids; my youngest sister is 16 years old. My mom runs a daycare from her house, so I am frequently helping her with whatever she needs. I worked at a sports & fun park for about 7 years, where I was a birthday hostess and had to supervise up to 25 children on different activities in the park. I also worked at a hotel abroad as a kids' club manager, where I would arrange different activities for kids of all ages for the day at the beach, pool, or inside doing arts and crafts! I have been a full time nanny for a few years now and really just love what I do!
