I am skilled and professionally practiced with over 10 years of experience as a nanny, babysitter, live-in, personal assistant, caregiver, home manager and home health aide. I have gained a broad spectrum of knowledge, understanding and flexibility by working with families and individuals of different beliefs and cultures (Jewish, Christian, Hindu) requiring different levels of assistance with an array of personal wants and needs.
I have first-hand experience in my field and a strong work ethic to accompany it. Along with my professional experience, the degree I am near the end of completing is in Health Sciences: Wellness, Health Promotion, Injury Prevention. My principles compel a commitment to bring light and a positive attitude to work and those I work for. I work to bring stability and the satisfaction of a job well-done regardless of the task at hand.
One of the most rewarding experiences I have had was working for a woman who was going through a separation, which led to a divorce, all while starting her own business, moving with her 2 children -- one boy toddler and an elementary aged girl. We worked together as a team facing every obstacle together. We were both driven and determined for the success and to bring as much love, support and balance to the children's lives as possible. While it was tremendously hard work, the end result was worth every moment, especially for such an incredible woman and her children.
A little more about me is I sing a lot to children. It is my #1 way of engaging and connecting as well as how I put them to bed. In the past year I have cared for a 4 month old and 1 year old and absolutely loved it!
I am considered "Mary Poppins" and "Martha Stewart meets Girl Scout" to all who know me. I am always prepared, thinking ahead, very organized and very much experienced in creating routines, setting in place structure and always promoting interaction with children in a boundary setting, loving and kind manner.
I have extensive experience in my field and experienced as a last minute, emergency, temp, transition and traveling nanny which does not at all effect the passion I have as a caregiver, and as I am an extrovert, I love the constant activity. I hope to hear from you!
