Full-time hours
13 yrs of experience

I am a mother of 5 adult children and Nana to 6 grandchildren whom I helped deliver. I have formal education as an LPN, as well as degrees in Human Services and Criminal Justice. I have up to date adult, infant and child CPR certification. I love children of all ages and have been referred to as the baby whisperer. My calm demeanor and vast infant experience allows me to sooth a crying infant quickly. I enjoy playing with toddlers and keeping them busy with fun activities, such as finger painting with pudding. I am able to help school age children with homework and I love to teach them new, age appropriate things. I have my own transportation and will drop off and pick up from school and activities. As a full time Nanny, I like to feel as though I am an extension of the family and will care for your little ones as if they were my own. I am available Monday through Friday during the hours your family requires. Overnights and weekends are charged differently and negotiable within reason. I am not bilingual, but I do know some ASL. I am also pet friendly, especially with dogs. My nanny style is to adhere to the parents rules and schedules for each child, thereby creating consistency and stability while in my care.
