I have been a nanny for over 15 years and have excellent references. I am a nanny because I love children and what I do. I do not currently have children of my own but with the experience that I have, will treat your bundles of joy like they were my own. I am very responsible, time conscious, educated, well rounded, have a great sense of humor, compassionate and empathetic to the needs of children. I have worked with 3 families and would have loved to work with the current family but they are moving out of town so I have to find a new family. I treat the families that I work for like they are my family and would love to continue working in that kind of environment. (They have all treated me like a member of their family as well). I am also flexible when it comes to unforeseen circumstances where parents are running late or may be travelling. I have worked with a family with 5 children (2 of whom were twins), a family with 3 school age children and a family with one child. Reading to kids and playing with them is second nature to me. Please don't hesitate to contact me. Thank you.
