I also have experience caring for twins (infants, toddlers, and school age), children with food allergies, children with asthma, and children with hearing and speech delays. In all of my positions, I have been a full-charge nanny. I have always been fully responsible for all aspects of the children such as setting up doctors appointments and bringing them to their appointments, signing them up for any sports or activities, setting up play dates, doing the kids grocery shopping and clothing shopping, packing and unpacking the kids necessities before vacations, bringing to birthday parties and buying the gifts, etc. I have a valid passport and experience traveling with families to both the west coast and internationally.

I've worked full-time in a childcare since I was 19, with the same company for 3 years in Alaska before moving and I've been with the same company since moving to Rhode Island in the summer of 2015.
