My love for working with kids began when my mom decided to open her own daycare in our home. I looked forward to coming home and helping my mom plan activities with the kids and playing with the infants. At the age of 12 I began babysitting for various daycare families and began to build my own network of families to babysit for. With my 15 years of childcare experience I also have 10 + years experience with teaching swim lessons and 5+ years coaching various swim teams. While in college I was presented with an opportunity to be a governess for a high school freshman, I continued to work with him for 3 years until graduation. I have also had 2 part-time nanny positions along with 2 full-time nanny positions. I have babysat for high profile families and understand the importance of discretion and confidentiality!! I have a deep passion for working with kids off all ages and am looking for a family to invest my passions into.
