Hello! I am a 32 yr old woman who loves caring for children. I am the 2nd oldest from a family of 9 children. I have 1 younger brother, & 6 younger sisters. I have been taking care of children for most of my life. I started babysitting for other families at the age 12. Over the years, I have developed many skills that have helped me excel in this particular field. Always trying my very best to show love, understanding, & lots of patients lol. Helping to gently teach & encourage kindness, tolerance, & respect to others around them. My 1st position as a Nanny begain with a wonderful little family in Lockport. Caring for twin girls, who had just turned 2. I continued working for the family until the girls went on to school. I was next asked to join a family with 3 children, (a boy & two girls) in Clarence Center. They too, are now all attending school. We have however remained close, & I still babysit for them on weekends. Lastly, I was asked to join a family in Spaulding Lake. Caring for their then 3 month old baby girl, & their 3 year old little boy. The kids are both now attending school daily. I have so many beautiful memories, & I am very sad to be moving on, but I am optimistic about what is to come. I take great care to fit the mold of what each unique family is looking for in a Nanny. Such as preferred activities, educational methods, nutritional preferences, religion, disciplinary tactics ect. I have been very fortunate to find a loving place within each of my familes. So if you think I may meet the criteria for what your looking for in a Nanny, or have any questions for me. Please feel free to contact me on the site, or via text message. Thank you for your time!
