Hi! My name is Jody and I am 26 years old and have a lot of experience nannying multiples, special needs, and multiple children close in age! I live in Minneapolis and am interested in finding a great local family. I have three families in the past 5 years of nannying whom I have absolutely adored, and vise versa. A lot of different types of people, professions and ages of children. The commonality in all; I was an important part of their great families. I have been trained in CPR, First Aid, SIDS. All are up to date and I have proof of each. I studied Spanish in my first two years of college, and lived at an orphanage in Guatemala for a semester. I know basic language and wouldn't mind helping out with Spanish practice. I have my own, reliable car with insurance, and am a non-smoker. I also enjoy pets and have no allergies. I am a Christian and practice good manners, morals, and values in and outside of my work and play. I have a clean driving record, can provide my background check and am willing to take a drug test if requested. I truly want to find a great family to become a part of. I have worked at an at-home daycare, a daycare center and privately nannied. All very enriching and enjoyable but I love nannying for a private family the best! Let me know if you feel I could be a good fit for your family! Thanks so much for reading my page! Email with any questions! Best, Jody :)

I became a babysitter 13 years ago for my neighrbors. I took a red cross babysitting course and I was on my way. In 1999 My first niece was born and I continued to care for her during the summer months and days off of school. In 2003 my second niece was born and then I continued to care for both of them during the summer months until I graduated in 2007. I then became a nanny for them ages 7 & 4 until the were in full time school. After that I did babysit for a few people when school was out as well as during the summer until I found a part time nanny position with a family in Inver Grove. They had a 3 month old and a 3 year old. I was with that family for 3 years on and off. Then in 2012 I started working at a preschool that just opened in So. St. Paul. I was unfortunately laid off and now I am currently at another preschool. I work in the infant room the majority of my time and cover breaks in toddlers. I have been around children my entire life and couldnt imagine myself doing anything else. I am also attending Rasmussen College to get my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education as well as apply for my CDA in infants and toddlers.
