I was a nanny for a group of 3 cousins that soon turned into 5 after twins were born.I had a infant,1 year old, and 2 year old. The twins recently joined the group and I will not be working with them this summer because they have found someone more long term. It was the best experience of my life. I took them to gymboree and music classes. We also sometimes met their parents for lunch.When the family went on vacation one of the parents couldn't get off work that week so I kept the 4 month old from 7am-6pm that week. We had playtime,lunch, naps, and went for walks. Their grandma also had a pool so occasionally we could swim. I am looking for a family to become as big a part of my life as this one has. We are all in touch often and I check in and visit the kids when home from college to maintain a steady relationship. I have also babysat for many many years and always grown up with children around. I am CPR cerified in infants,children, and adults as well as first aid certified. I have also previous worked as a CNA for a year during my freshmen year of college. I have recently been excepted to the school of nursing in Fayetteville Arkansas so coming home for the summer and spending it working with children is a great passion of mine.

As a teenager I assumed the role of caring for my young cousins as their parents worked endless hours. From when they were born to them entering middle school (so grown up!) I have helped with their education, expansion of fine arts and applied sciences, and gave them a healthy environment to grow. Once I began attending college, I took a job caring for my friend's baby boy while she attended night classes. Though I was only with them for a semester, I enjoyed every minute of his company.

I have been babysitting and working with children for five years now. During high school I was secretary of xx. In being secretary for this club it allowed for me to plan nanny nights at my high school's daycare. I have taken care of newborns to teenagers. Also in high school I took multiple Childhood Development classes to educate myself on child behavior and the proper ways to be an efficient caretaker. For the past two years at Kansas State I have volunteered and raised money all year round for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. My sorority is top 10 raising chapters in the nation! I am energetic, optimistic, and responsible.
