I have worked with Children my whole life whether that be volunteering at a preschool, babysitting, teaching Sunday School, or caring for my sisters because my Mother had surgery or my parents want a few nights away alone together.

I began babysitting for family, friends, and neighbors at a very young age. In high school, I volunteered as a tutor/mentor to middle school students, and spent my summer months away from home as a live-in nanny. I lived with my sister and her family when their second child was born, and I was able to help care for both nieces. I have been working as a professional nanny in the Phoenix area for nearly six years. Various positions have provided experience with ages newborn to 12 years, as well as personal assistance and household management.
