I grew up being the oldest child in a family of eight with three younger brothers and two younger sisters. My parents never had the need to hire anyone for help with the kids because ever since I was old enough, I have always been the one to do so when my parents were gone. My youngest sibling is 13 years younger than I am, so I have experience caring for kids from infant to 13 years. Because I have cared for children of all ages, I have experience ranging from changing diapers and bottle feeding all the way to just being interactive and having fun with them. Not only have I cared for my siblings, but I have also babysat for many families that are friends of my parents when they were in need of a night out. For one family I was a nanny for about a year, watching two kids on a daily basis for eight hours a day during the work week. I have been told that I have an amazing maternal instinct and I would love to continue working with children!

I started babysitting when I was probably about 14 years old. They were two lovely twins (one boy one girl) from age 4-6. I was very close with the family and created a wonderful bond with the kids. I also babysat a couple of girls, ages 1, 5, and 10. They were a handful but what such a wonderful group of kids to watch grow. I also have been babysitting my cousins since birth but not as often. They are now 10(Boy) and 14(girl). I think that is the most rewarding part, watching them learn and grow up. Just knowing that you are a small part of that, means everything to me!

A little bit about me. My husband I got married in September 2011, and got pregnant with Elijah the Friday after our wedding. He turned 1 on June 12th. If I would be allowed to bring him along, that would be phenomenal. He's a very good baby. They could interact and grow up together. Socialization is so important for children. The children I nanny for now absolutely love him. I know it is a strange request to ask to bring your child, but he is a very good baby who takes 2-3 hours worth the nap(s) a day. I promise you will not find a harder, more dedicated and loving worker than I am. I am a women of integrity. I will love and care for your child as my own. For me, being a nanny is more than just a job. I feel like an extension of the family. I become very invested in the children I care for.

I have worked in several accredited centers with ages 6 weeks and up, as well as temporarily nannied for a 6 month old baby girl and after comparing the two I very much enjoyed my time spent as a nanny. I was able to be very creative about our day and activities. From sign language to finger painting, and everything in between it was the best experience in my career history and I look forward to being able to have that same experience with other families in need of reliable child care.

I have spent about 2 years working at a licensed daycare as a helper. I really enjoyed having the experience of working with different children and getting to know them better. I helped the child care provider with whatever she needed done. We would do arts and crafts that used paint or drawings either inside or outside if the weather was nice. We went outside every day to play on the playground or in the sandbox in the background of the child care provider's house. We also played different kinds of games either card or board games and sometimes I would bring my own in case the kids wanted to play one of my own games.
