I am an educated, involved and fun loving nanny with 8 years experience involving child care. I have nannied full time with three different families since I was 18 years old, and have been babysitting since I was 15. I have a degree in fine arts with a minor in psychology. In the next couple years I plan to continue my education with child psychology. I genuinely love spending time with children, toddlers and babies. I have worked with all ages of children up to 12, so I have a good understanding on development. Though I am a mature adult I feel I have the fun, silly energy of a child. I understand how important education, life lessons, as well as pure fun is for a child's growth. I have always activity engaged in activity with the children I have worked with, whether that's having a tea party, playing lava tag, or hide and go seek. These pastimes are things I actually enjoy and have fun doing myself. I am a health advocate and believe in clean eating and exercise, so I also love a healthy lifestyle. Being an art major I am very creative and love doing projects of all sorts. Arts a s craft projects, science projects and stuff in between. I am looking for a family to be apart of and close to.
