Full-time hours

Hi, my name is Michaela, I am originally from Romania and I currently live and work in the United States. I live in Roebling (Burlington County), NJ, in a very friendly and beautiful neighborhood. I have been living in the States for over 11 years, during which I have been working as a full-time nanny for 4 families and baby sat for many others. I have over 15 years experience with children, ages 0 to 13 years old. I came to The States as an au pair in a family with two children (Maya, girl, was born one month after I arrived and Avi, boy, 2 years old). I spent two years with the, as a live-in nanny, and I was responsible for all related kids chores: I took them to school, play dates, and activities, prepared meals, kids laundry, cleaning up their room, putting toys away and so on. I often offered the parents my help in other activities around the house and we got along very well. Unfortunately, after 2 years, they moved to Sweden and I started right away with a family friend of theirs, for another two years. 2007-2010 I was a full time nanny for a family with tree kids, Nicole, 8 and Samantha & Jake, 6. Their mother past away in October 2006, of cancer, and I started in January. It was challenging and beautiful at the same time, and now I can say that my presence, brought a little happiness in the kid’s lives. After three years with them, and due to a troublesome economy, the father was laid off and he is going to be home full time until he is able to find another job. early 2010-end of 2012 I was a mother helper/full time nanny for a family of four. 5 yr old Jake and triplets Taylor, Katie and Chase, 3 yrs old, filled my days with love and crazy hectic games and playing. I traveled with the family as well, they have a vacation home in Wildwood Crest, NJ. MY responsibilities included primarily caring for the children, secondly caring for their home, cooking dinners for the family, laundry for the family and running errands, as well as grocery shopping. My commitment with them ended before Christmas. I had a trusting, loving relationship with my families and each one of them is unique and beautiful.
