Hello families! I am an organized, friendly and experienced nanny seeking a babysitting position as soon as possible. I have a Bachelor's of Science from Sacred Heart University and a master's in Clinical Psychology from Teachers College Columbia University. Right now, I am in the process of getting my doctorate in Clinical Psychology and I am seeking a position while I am in school. Professionally speaking, I have worked with children who experience various behavioral, sensory, and cognitive difficulties. I have experience with children of all ages and hope to add activity and excitement to your environment. Regarding to my nannying experience, I have cared for children for about 7 years. I also have four nieces whom I care for regularly. I pride myself on the importance of keeping children active and always learning. I have worked with many child psychologists, and have learned that fostering enthusiasm in children is the best way for them to learn. As a nanny/babysitter, I am willing to help in any way you may need. I can provide my own transportation, can do basic cooking, light housekeeping, and carpooling. References are available upon request. I look forward to meeting you!
