I have spent 4 years as a nanny, with 2 different families. The children's ages ranged between 2 and 6. Before that I was Preschool teacher, and provided full time care for children between the ages of 8 weeks to 5 years. I recieved my Early Childhood Education Teaching Certificate, as well as my First Aid/ CPR Certification. Before these experiences, I volunteered for the Santa Rosa Parks Dept. and the Children's library, and also babysit local children from the time I was 12 years of age.

I was a professional math tutor for children ages 3-18 for 2 years, and I was employed as a full time nanny this summer. I took care of 2 children, a 10 year old boy and a four year old girl. On several occasions I also watched several of their friends (for a maximum of around 5 children at a time). I started babysitting when I was 11, and I mostly babysat the younger kids on my street. I am able to babysit children from infancy (t like to be babysat). I am capable of performing CPR on infants, children, and adults, although my certification is no longer valid since I got it several years ago.

I grew up in a family of four other siblings: 3 sisters and a brother, and grew up helping take care of them all the time. I also did babysitting for other families all through high school. Now I have friends with kids and my husband and I babysit for them frequently.

Working with young children is my passion, and I have been in the field for 13 years. I have worked in multiple preschool settings, and more recently as a nanny. I have worked with children as young as 4 months, all the way up to elementary school aged. I also have my degree in Child Development from Oregon State University.

My favorite age group to work with is children 0-3 years old. I enjoy being in nature, doing art, engaging in music and movement and reading with young children. My mission is to inspire young children, to believe that they are capable of anything and to follow their dreams.

I am very organized and good at multi-tasking. This I believe helps to provide a feeling of safety, security and consistency, which I believe fosters in helping young children enjoy day today life and in setting them up for success in the future.
