Hello! My name is Victoria and I am very interested in becoming your nanny! I am 22 years old, and from Columbia, South Carolina. I love to help others, and have focused my career around helping and servicing others. It is a passion of mine. I have prior retail, restaurant, and babysitting/nanny experience. I adore children, and have found great satisfaction in caring for the children I have. I find it to be not only a lot of fun, but also a great learning experience. I have spent many summers babysitting, and spent one summer as a nanny. I have cared for children ranging in age from 2-12 years old. I grew up with two younger sisters (10 and 12 years younger than me) and helped my mother a lot with caring for them as they grew up. I am very comfortable with children of all ages, as I have experienced and assisted with not only my sisters but family members and friends who had children as they have grown up. I would love to meet you, and your family and see what I can bring to and how I can assist with your home life! Feel free to call, email, or contact me! I'll hear from you soon! -Victoria
