I have 12 years of experience in caring for children, as I cared for (as needed) for a family with three young girls from 2001 to present. And most recently for a family with 8 children, 5 of whom I was responsible for each day in partnership with the mother. I had other part time/full time nanny positions as well. I love to be around children and am currently pursuing a degree in music education with an English minor, to become a certified kindergarten to 12th grade teacher in Michigan. I love to help foster children's creativity with a blend of arts, athletics, and silly fun. I like to laugh, cook, read, and sing in my spare time. I volunteer at my local church as well, and am the director of the children's choir.

I have been babysitting since the age of 13 and have been a nanny since the age of 18. I worked part time as a nanny for several years as I went to school. I do have a teaching degree from Eastern Michigan University. I taught in Detroit for one year and found a nanny job that I loved. I have been with them for 4 years and the only reason I'm leaving is because we moved and I'm over an hour drive. The nanny position before that was 2 1/2 year and 4 years prior to that.
