My name is Camille and I just graduated a semester early from UMass Amherst where I was earning my Bachelor's in Communication Disorders with a minor in Education. My original plan was to enter graduate school to become a Speech-Language Pathologist in early intervention, which serves children ages 0-3. I would like to nanny for a few years before attending graduate school. I have been a nanny for the past 10 years, full time during school breaks and part time during the school year. I have particularly extensive experience with infants and toddlers. It is something I genuinely enjoy and would love to continue to nanny for the next few years. I think that the combination of my experience and academic background is what sets me apart as a nanny. Because of my background in communication disorders and education, I have a deep understanding of many aspects of child development. I pride myself on being a loving, intuitive, and wholesome nanny. I have always formed great relationships with those I have worked with, and that is actually one of my favorite parts of the job. In addition, I drive a very safe, reliable car and have a clean driving record.
