Hi there. Currently I work as a nanny for a little "big" boy in Westford. I have been with him for 5 years, since he was just over 2 months. Sadly he is going into full day kindergarten, so I'm actively looking to join a new family. My boss, his mother, has kindly written a wonderful reference that captures my time with them and I can email that at request. A little about me. I'm 33, live in Chelmsford MA, avid photographer, love to cook, dog lover, and volunteer with Special Olympics. Professional nanny for almost 10 years. I love what I do and I'm passionate about it. I have always been the "mom type." The type who nurtures children, pays attention to their individual attributes and personalities. Helps them to build their self esteem and confidence, allowing them to grow and reach their fullest potential. All in a safe and positive environment. To top it off, we have fun together.

For about a year and a half, I volunteered at my church helping with the nursery at my church where I worked with children ages 18 months through 4 years old. I have babysat for two little girls and a little baby a few times and very much enjoyed it. I have also helped take care of my younger brother a lot. My younger brother is 8 years younger than me, so I was given a lot of opportunity to help take care of him. Through the years I have spent a lot of time with him and he is now 12 years old. I have thoroughly working with the children that I have worked with.
