I have been passionate and interested in caring for children from a young age, starting at the most important level- family. Since then, I have babysat and cared for children of people in my community privately as well as family members. I am comfortable and able to care for children of all ages. I look forward to getting to know you and your family. Most recently, I spent 3 years nannying for a family of 2 children, ages 12 and 14. While with this loving family, I was responsible for their daily routines, scheduling and leisure time, transportation, appointments, homework help, cooking, light house work, laundry, shopping, and pet care. I quickly adapted to whatever they needed and turned it into a valuable learning experience. But most of all I fell in love with the children and those relationships are still very special to me. I am leaving my current employer to return home, start school, and be closer to family.
