I have been a nanny for over ten years. I started my nanny career right after I graduated from high school. My sister was a nanny for over a decade and helped train and establish career. I have received most of my nanny positions through personal references and I am still in contact with nearly every family I have worked with. I love the nature of care taking and helping where ever I can. The lasting relationships I have built have been the most rewarding part of being a nanny. I consider it an honor and a privileged to be entrusted with someones most prized possession, their children.

I started babysitting in high school for family and friends. Once out of high school I went to work at Disney World for an internship program and worked with kids there and loved it! After completing college I started to nanny for a family of four with ages ranging from 5-15. There I was responsible for after school activities, meals, and light housekeeping. I also stayed the night and was responsible for getting all children ready and to school. Then I nannied for a family of three with daughters ages 3-7, and am currently nannying for a family of 2, an infant and a 4 year old. I have had the opportunity to not only watch them grow and play all sorts of games, but also watch the older of the two learn her ABC's and start writing!
