I have 20+ years experience as a nanny. The first 11 years I was a live-in, and have been a live-out for the past 11 years. In that time, I've cared for 8 different families and 22 different children ranging in age from 9 months to 18 years of age. Fun, loving, playful, firm but gentle, supportive, encouraging, and outgoing are some words that have been used to describe me. Nannying has become not only my career but also my passion. Being a nanny is such a rewarding experience. I enjoy sharing my varied interests with the families/children in my care, and knowing that what I'm doing is allowing for more family time when the parents are home, because things like laundry and homework are mostly completed when I'm there. Nothing is more rewarding than sharing in the growth and development of children into wonderful, caring adults. After 9 years with my last family, my hope is to find another family to join and work together for a mutually beneficial professional relationship.

I was a nanny last summer for a local family in the town that I live in. I was responsible for all aspects of the day including taking the children to programs, feeding them meals and providing and planning for activities. I also work in the childcare center at our recreation center where I go to college. I interact with the children, play with them, and assist them in meals and activities. I also babysat all throughout middle school and high school.
