Dear family, I am a 38 year old lady born and raised in South Africa. I worked as a Camp Counselor in 2000 on a Girls Scouts Camp and loved working with kids ever since! I loved and cared for triplets from 2005 until 2008 as a live in nanny / au pair for a wonderful family in Long Island. While the triplets were in school, I took care of a 2 year old girl and a 5 year old boy. I babysat on weekends and in the evenings. I then relocated to the city and took care of a 9 month old, 5 year old, 7 year old and 9 year old on the upper East side for 2 months but unfortunately I had to return to South Africa due to family responsibilities. I then worked for an Immigration Law Firm in South Africa ,ever since then i knew that deep down that i was not content with sitting behind a desk on the computer all day every day. I then decide to come back to America and worked for a wonderful family for 2 years in Long Island taking care of a 2 year old cute Zoey and 5 year old funny Jada. As well as part time with Kyle age 8, Zac 6 and Raya 5 years old. I however, still keep in contact and visit all the families i have worked for and have great relationships with them all. I relocated to the city and worked for a phenomemal family for 1 year and took care of Jonas which is was 8 years old and Mae who is was 3 years old and she was adopted from the Philippines. I travelled with then to North Carolina over the summer as well, i am very flexible. Later on i starting working for a phenomenal family in Midtown on the East side and took care of precious Aidan will will soon be 7 years old for over a year. He is a great kid and as much a I teach him a lot, I sure am learning a lot from him as well. I am currently working for my old boss which is now a single mom with a almost 6 year old Zoey and Jada who just turned 9 years old. Ive known this family for 9 years now and i feel like these girls are my kids :)I spend much time with this family in the summer in Montauk and always have fun in the sun with the girls. Not only do i take care of these two precious angels i help my boss run her recruitment agency and assist her with all her administration work and out the kids calendar together. I have experience with doing homework, traveling and juggling many kids,taking them to different activities, play dates and anywhere fun and educational. My boss calls me superwoman :-) I am comfortable taking the kids on the subway or bus and even to other boroughs with you permission. I love working with kids, and not only being their nanny but I love to be a part of their lives and feel like part of the family. I am very hard working and I always give my 100%. I am very flexible and I always give my best and do my best! I am very family oriented person and believe that family always come first. I have one brother and one sister as well as three nieces and one nephew and a nephew on his way which i love and adore very much, so i am familiar with the need of children even though i don't have any kids of my own. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact and i will be more than happy to answer them for you. Thanking You Gizelle.
