As the eldest in my family, I've always been surrounded by children! I am the oldest of four and have learned endless patience from caring for my siblings, one of whom is special needs. I've also cared for children in the community by babysitting for over a decade, tutoring, and serving as a mentor as well as nannying full time for the past three years.I have my own reliable and safe transportation, and pride myself on being patient, punctual, and kind. I put the safety and development of the children I care for first and am CPR/AED Certified, and can happily provide references upon request.

Being the oldest child in my extended family, I have been babysitting since I was old enough to be left on my own. I have held paid positions for six years now, from both family and others who have contacted me through job websites. Working with children is such a pleasure with me, babysitting and nannying is, by far, the best job I could hold.
