I have always enjoyed being around children. I have been babysitting since I was 13 years old, with children ranging from 3 weeks- 12 years old. I was a full time nanny for three years in Texas before becoming a military wife and relocating to New Jersey. Since moving to NJ I have worked as a full time live-out nanny for a blended family with five children as well as babysitting for many local families around base and in the local area.
