I grew up in a great town with my mother, father and younger brother. I was the oldest and felt responsible for watching over my 31/2 year younger brother who I adored. I started my babysitting skills early! My parents were both successful in their own right and instilled a good work ethic in us kids. There was lots of laughter, fun games and people around us all the time. We also loved sports as a family often waterskiing, swimming, clamming, skiing, playing football and going to the beach together. I honestly had a wonderful childhood!

I have been in this field for 12 years. As a nanny, early intervention and as a volunteer lead teacher at the church that I go to. I am also CPR and EEC certified. As I been worked with kids for 9 years , 4 years as a volunteer work for church and also took one year of psychology childhood in high school; more and more I learn that kids do learn by repetition and patience and more than anything by your example. So that's what I try to bring for my job: my experience and the respect that I have for all the families that I work for.

For the past 3 years I have worked with a wonderful family with children ages 4-9. I had daily tasks that included, but not limited to: grocery shopping, kids laundry, bringing the children to school and pick up as well, also bringing them to after school activities. I would also do some light housekeeping and prepare all of the children's meals. The only reason that I was let go from this family was because of my unavailability to do over nights, due to my new son that was born 2 months ago. Before I began working with this family I was an assistant manager for a retail company. Which I was responsible for organizing and keeping many of my employees in task. I also have a hairdressing license. I was a hairstylist for 6 years. The only reason for leaving these past 2 jobs is because I enjoy taking care of children more than anything else. Also for the past 15 years I have also had the pleasure of helping my grandmother with her at home daycare.

I have always been good with kids, I used to watch my younger brother as we were growing up along with my younger cousins and the neighborhood kids from time to time. When I was younger I also would babysitter the younger siblings of families that played sports with myself or my younger brother. I also have been the sitter for friends that have children seeing how I am now a mother and have a son of my own. He is 8 now and I have watched kids with him ever since he was born.
