My name is Brittany and I am 26 years old. I have nannied for two families throughout my graduate studies and have babysat since I was 12. I am compassionate, outgoing, fun, and reliable. I follow an authoritative parenting style; being sure that I am not only protecting the children I nanny, but also teaching them the reasons to my requests. I love reading, playing outside, arts and crafts, and cooking! I incorporate my child and the children I nanny into everything I do to better prepare them for more independent roles in life. I am currently practicing mental health counseling at an agency in Albany, but am looking to be closer to home, at a position that allows me to spend more time with my son, and surrounding him with other children. I recently received my license in mental health counseling and will be utilizing my license a couple evenings a week at a private practice. I am extremely flexible so please contact me with any questions and/or to set up a time to chat!
