Hi. My name is Mariana. I'm from Mexico. I've been living in the states for 4 years now. I speak English, Spanish and a bit of Portuguese. I'm certified in CPR. I'm married. Being a Nanny is what I do for a living. I have experience as an Au-pair (live-in nanny) for a year in Northport. I took care of 3 amazing kids: a 12-year-old girl and two boys, ages 9 and 4 years old. I also worked for 3 summers at a summer camp in Mexico with a group of 6 children, ages 5, 6, and 7 years old. I have experience in caring for my 3 nephews, since they were born. I was helping my sister take care of them. Now they are 4, 6, and 8 years old. I also worked for another family in Northport for almost a year just twice a week looking after a beautiful 5-year-old girl. Recently I worked for two families who were neighbors for over a year and a half in Centerport, caring for three awesome boys (10, 7, 6). I've been working for a few families from Huntington, Centerport and Northport as a "Nanny on call" or back up nanny. I have experience working with children from adorable babies to those who go through that beautiful phase of adolescence that I'm sure we all love
