Full-time hours

I have nearly 10 years of experience being a nanny dating back to high school. I have been a nanny for age groups that range from 1 month-13 years old. I have experience with special needs children as well. Upon graduation from high school, I attended Clemson University and graduated with a bachelor's degree in Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Management with a concentration in Community Recreation and Management. Throughout my educational experience at Clemson, I worked and interned at several camps and worked with a diverse group of children. After graduating from Clemson, I cared for my then 3 month old nephew for the summer season and then moved onto work as a case manager at Crosswell Home For Children in Sumter, SC. I worked there for a year, married, and relocated to my husband's work location in Landrum, SC where he is an elementary school PE teacher. The past year I have worked as a teaching assistant in the school system. I am CPR and Wound Care Certified. I also was required to have a background check prior to being employed for the school district. Nannying and caring for children is something that I am very familiar and comfortable doing.
