I have been taking care of children since the age of ten. I started a "business" in my neighborhood where the parent would (instead of leaving) hire me to amuse the children while they could do chores and other such things around the house uninterrupted. At the age of twelve, I felt responsible enough to be left alone and transitioned to babysitting. I had such a great rapport with the families, I was the most requested babysitter in the neighborhood! I have also coached co-ed 4/5 yr old soccer teams and 3rd and 4th grade girls basketball teams. Also I coached the middle school and high school lacrosse teams in Kingwood, Tx. I am CPR and AED certified as well as instructor certified. I have taken several classes in (high school and college level) Early Childhood Professions, Child Psychology, and Child Development. I am a Medic in the US Army Reserves and received a BA in Psychology with a dual minor in Child Psychology and Human Services. I have been fingerprinted per Nevada's Police Department for a background check. I have experience with multiples, as well as large spans of age ranges. I prefer not to put your children in my car as it is only a two-seater, but I will transport kids to activities if need be in a more family-styled vehicle.

I have been babysitting for about 8 years, and I've been a nanny for a couple years. I was just recently a live-in nanny for a family in California. I loved it, and I love this work. When I work, the children come first before anything, and everything. Their needs before mine, their wants before mine, them, before me. Children are very needy, they love attention, they love to play, they have lots of energy. You got to be patient with them, and kind. I love to play with them, to be apart of thier imagination. Children are so much fun, and so loving. I am from a family of 9, so I know the responsibilities of taking care of young ones. Children look to adults for guidence, for love and support, to be a part of their lives, to show them everything that they have accomplished. I have just as big of imagination as children, I consider myself as just a big child. Children also need to learn the guidlines and the rules of the house, I try my best to teach them the rules. I help them in every way that I can to teach them, to help them learn. I give them praise when they want it, and desearve it. I love children, and I do my best to keep them safe, to keep them out of harms way, give them love and fun, teach them what they need to learn, and help them with what they want to do. I am very kind and loving, passionate and patiant. I am loyal and trustworthy, honest and dependable. You can count on me to help and tend to your childs needs, and do all that I can to make sure that they have a good life growing up.

I first started by caring for my 3 younger siblings (1 brother,2 sisters) when I was just 5 years old and my mother went back to school full-time. My father was also working double shifts with the Boulder City P.D. They couldn't afford much so we ended up with mostly elderly people that sat and slept all day so with my parents' hectic schedules, I was left to watch my siblings, change diapers, bathe the children, cook, clean, assist with homework and developmental skills. Once I turned 10 my parent's friends would ask me to sit for them all the time and I have been caring for children ever since, which would be at least 19 years not counting my family. I have been assisting in caring for my Fiancee's three children (ages 6,7 and 8 now) since March of 2011, and I gave birth to a daughter one year ago that is in my care 24/7.

I feel I am very conscious of the needs and necessities of children and toddlers. I have been taking care of my own and other children since I was 13 years old. It is what I do best. I believe years of hands on experience, in anything, can give you the confidence; intuition, knowledge and skill and can only be gained through the time experience give us. Anyone can study something for years, which may provide them the knowledge but, they would lack actual experience, skills and the essential interaction necessary in being able to call it being “experienced in” anything.

I have been involved with children for over 4 years professionally. I taught swimming lessons during high school to kids ages 3 to 12. After graduating, I attended college at Washington State University where I was privileged to have a part time job at the children's center on campus where I was a teaching assistant. Essentially, this was a pre-school/daycare that partnered with the university to study the development of children based on positive encouragement in social and learning environments. After learning a great deal there, I was able to put it into practice at a pre-school in Las Vegas where I became a pre-school teacher. I love kids and am really comfortable with teaching and playing with them.
