If you are looking for someone who has a good work and criminal background, well mannered, healthy cook, strict but lovely and understand then I might be a good fit for your family. I'm currently a Correctional Officer and have been for almost 3 years. Before that, I was with a family for 3 years which you are welcome to contact them. Before that family, I was a nanny for two other families in a 3 year span (this just includes nanny not babysitting history). I have done both live-in and live-out nanny work though I'm only seeking live-out. I'm very ethical and very professional. I have mostly worked for families that have jobs that are very demanding and mostly in public serving (Police, Military, Medical). I'm the nanny you can call at the last minute to come into work and trust that I will always have your families best interest at heart. I take pride in what I do and generally love my job and the families I work for. But at the same time, I provide the loving, fun, interactive, nutriment environment that every child needs to grow. I have always been involved with law enforcement and therefore your family safety will always come first to me.

Growing up, I was the oldest of three kids. I have two younger brothers so I was a built in baby sitter you could say. One of my brothers is 14, and my youngest brother is 6. My youngest brother was also diagnosed with a heart condition so he's always needed more attention and gentleness. I have also worked with a boy named roman who has a severe form of autism. I watched him everyday after school, he is 8. Most of the the jobs I have usually applied for have been with children such as the kindercare, babysitting, and the "mall jump".

i was a full time mother's helper in highschool. I have been a full time live-in nanny for a couple with two boys, whom were 2 & 5 years old. I would do anything like getting them ready, laundry, housework, errands, cooking, bathing the kids, and putting them to bed. I also helped the 5 year old read his first phonics book as well as take them to places like the library, union station, crowne center (they LOVE the fountains), etc.......anything educational. Last year, I was a part-time nanny for two families. One was a little boy with down syndrome. He has a peg tube that I had to put his medications and formula through so I have experience with special needs. The other was a family of 2 sisters. Between the two sisters, I had a newborn, 1 year old, 2 year old, 3 year old, 4 year old, and a 7 year old. Like the previous two boys, I helped with laundry, meal times, getting them to school, helped with home, and basically anything to help the households run smoothly.

Here is my current short story: I moved to Lees Summit about 3 years ago and became a full-time nanny to a wonderful family. Unfortunately, health issues arose and they didn't need me anymore. I then became a full-time live-in nanny for a traveling dad who had a 12 and a 14-year-old. I also started babysitting a 5-month-old, a 1-year-old and a 4-year-old who I still care for occasionally. I have several nieces and nephews, one of which has Spina Bifida and requires a little extra care, as he can't walk and gets sick easily. I am currently a full-time nanny for a great family who I have a wonderful routine with. I have been with them for a little over 2 years and plan on staying with them until I relocate to Springfield, Missouri this summer.I can also possibly start sooner for the right family!

I've had many childcare jobs since I was around 16 years old. I've been a nanny the past three summers and would love to find another nanny job this year. I enjoy taking the kids I watch to the pool and do other fun activities. I have watched kids as young as 4 months old all the way up to 14 years old.
