Children have been apart of my life since I can remember. As soon as I was old enough I became the neighborhood babysitter. I started with a day care facility, in 1995 caring for children 6 weeks - 12 years, presenting daily structured lesson plans. I also coordinated the summer camp program for two years. In addition to working, I organized and managed leagues for children. After high school I attended the Nanny School. Upon receiving my Certified Professional Nanny Certificate I had the opportunity of spending five years working with two wonderful children. I took additional classes and seminars to help the children learn how to read and play piano. Potty training was a favorite memory with the kids but there was no class on that! Once the children were of school age in 2002, my services were no longer needed. I took this opportunity to see the states and travel to California. After arriving in Los Angles, I was the Director of a Children Fitness Center for three years. Instructing children 6 months - 12 years to refine their motor and gross skills was my favorite part of the job. Due to the success of the fitness center, I was offered an executive position in 2004, at a pet-sitting and concierge business. I found my life was incomplete. Kids were my world and I had to find a way to incorporate them in my life. I began a children's party planning business hosting kid events. While managing two businesses I also had the ability to continue traveling to many states. I moved back to Cleveland in June 2008, at this point I have traveled to over 23 states and three countries. With all my experiences and travel I had so much to offer to children growing up. I am currently committed to another family M,W & F. While going to school at night completing my business management Associates degree (2013). Working with kids is an experience like no other. I am inspired by how they teach and challenge us on a daily basis. I am excited to begin another experience with a new family for the best interest of the children.
