Nicole G. - Seeking Work in Medford

14.28 / hour
Full-time hours

Hi! My name is Nicole and I am a 29-year-old certified medical assistant with hopes to become an RN one day, but for now looking to get back to my nanny roots for the next year or so. I have 10 years experience in child care. I have experience with infants to junior high children. I worked with my longest family for about 4 years, I left to pursue school and of course the kids grew up, so I was not needed anymore, so it worked out. I am still very close with the family, they consider me family and we still keep in touch and I can provide my resume along with references and I do not mind a background check if requested. Good luck with your search. :-)
