As a mature caregiver, I bring many years of experience, dependability, and good judgement to any position. For the past ten years I have nannied for several families. Even for a set of twins that I have been with since birth and are moving to CT soon. For fifteen years prior to that, I was an infant caregiver for Catholic Social Services. Frequently I substitute at our local primary school, so I have a background check on file in my district. I am also CPR certified.

At your convenience, I am available to chat with you about my experience, qualifications and to provide references I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you,
Carlene Ventura
