Hello! My name is Kristen and I am a 19 year old professional live-out nanny. I am trying to find the perfect family for me. I am currently a nanny with another family but due to the distance I have to travel daily (60 miles total) we have come to a mutual agreement to find a better fit for each of us. I am a loving, dedicated nanny. I would love to find a family that I can take care of full or part-time in the summer and still work for in the fall when I return to school. I would build my school schedule around the families hours and needs. I have reliable transportation and a clean driving record. I do not smoke. I love pets and I am not allergic to them. I am allergic to dust, but not overly. I do not drink alcohol. I only speak English, although I did speak Chinese and Spanish and currently am in the process of re-learning. I am looking to work a maximum of 10 miles away from my home (in the Midtown Tulsa area only). I am looking for a long-term position with a family, as I wish to become a part of the family. As far as education my goals are to obtain my Associates in Biology and continue for a Bachelors or Masters in Biology to become a Marine Biologists. I do not, nor have I been treated for any mental illnesses or have been treated for depression. I am comfortable caring for 3-4 children. I love all ages, but feel most comfortable and have the most experience caring for newborns and children up to 10 years old. I am CPR and first aid certified and have been since I was 13. My strengths would be that I'm loyal, honest, caring, smart, trustworthy, responsible, have a great sense of humor, love to explore and I'm great with children. In my free time I like to read, draw, paint, listen to music, sing, travel, photograph, do crafts and DIY projects and smile. In my immediate family I have 4, but my family is rather large and family gatherings are always fun. My relationship with my parents is very strong and supportive. We have been through so much, which has only strengthened our relationship. My sister and I are very close and I would do anything in the world for her. Since we are 13 years apart I try to be the best role model possible for her. My past jobs have included hosting and bussing for a restaurant, babysitting for multiple families, working in a church nursery and nannying. I am definitely interested in taking classes to further my knowledge and abilities as a childcare professional. As far as assertiveness, I am in the middle. For the most part I am easy going, but I will step in if there is a situation I am not comfortable with. I believe in the "1-2-3" step and timeout method for disciplining. I am a great communicator. I am available to work Monday - Friday, 9am - 5pm. I am a professional nanny and do not think of it as a job, but my passion and career. If I sound like a perfect fit for you please do not hesitate to call or text me! I also respond to e-mails swiftly!
