I've been caring for children since I was 15yrs old. I've cared for many children of all ages, some with learning, mental and physical disabilities. My duties have included; carpooling to camps and daily activities, making appts; doctors, house repairs, play dates and extracurricular activities. I'm also capable of light housework including; vacuuming, dusting, organizing, cleaning the kitchen and children's laundry. I make time to prepare easy meals for the family only upon request. Schoolwork is important and it comes before everything including friends, TV and gaming systems this is a rule that I try and enforce with my families. I also help by running errands, grocery shopping and clothing shopping when requested with premade lists. In addition I'm a licensed EMT with CPR training; this means I handle medical situations (small or big) with a calm and responsible attitude. Being outside with your children is one of the most important activities for me, I love playing sports, walking, making up games and taking many trips to the area parks. My indoor creative side is enhanced by your children's active imagination and going with the flow sometimes proves that fun can come from a simple paper plate!!! I’m a loving, caring, responsible, trustworthy and respectful woman and deserve the same from you, your children, family and friends. I’ll be part of your family and will not tolerate being treated as part of “the help”. I look forward to meeting your wonderful family and wish you the best of luck looking for that special someone to care for your beautiful gifts!!!

I started out as a babysitter when I was 13 for my aunt and uncle who have 3 children ages 3-13. I watched them over the course of 2 summers. I then moved onto a family who requested my services on date nights once a week, they had 2 children ages 2 and 8 months. I took a break from being a babysitter/nanny so I could work at xx during the Christmas season. When I resumed my duties as a nanny/babysitter I began babysitting for a co-worker of my mothers. Her two children were 5 and 13. I also began to babysit for a family with an amazing 5 year old little boy. He is 8 now and his brother almost 2. I still watch them from time to time. I frequently babysit for my sister, her daughter is 10 months old. I am currently a few months pregnant with my own child and I cannot wait to be a mommy. I have many years of child care experience. Each one brought new challenges and new adventures.
