Hi! I've been around kids for as long as I can remember and love it! I started babysitting at age 12 and haven't stopped since! From 2007-2009, I worked at a daycare in Ardmore, where I worked with infants through preschool aged children. From 2009-2011, I was a nanny for a family with two boys, ages 4 and 8. In August of 2011, I graduated from West Chester University with a Bachelors in Communicative Disorders. After graduating, I started my current job as a Therapeutic Support Staff where I provide one on one behavioral intervention for children with special needs. Since starting this job, I've continued to babysit on the side, after-school, on weekends, and during the summer for numerous families. I also have 2 nieces and a nephew who I am constantly with. Last January, I decided to further my education and started a Master's program in Social Work. My current job hours are compatible to a teachers: I have off in the summers, therefore I am looking for a summer nanny position only. I am CPR and first aid certified and have all clearances updated. References available upon request.

I began babysitting at a young age for families in the neighborhood and continue to do so for my family/family friends in my free time today. Most recently I have taken care of a child with Autism, it has been truly amazing to see him grow into the young man he is today. I have a 9-year-old sister and can't get enough of her, I spend a lot of time with her and love every second of it. I also sit for an 11-month-old baby girl and and occasionally take her overnight.

I've worked in several daycares and kindergartens in Denmark. I've taken care of kids at the age of 0-3 years old for two years and kids at the age of 3-7 years old for two years as well. I've been a live-in au pair for the past two years. My first year was in San Diego where I took care of an infant and a toddler. My second year was in Philadelphia where I took care of a 5 year old and a 7 year old.
