I began caring for children at age 11. Throughout middle school I served two families on a regular basis, each with three children ranging in ages from two to nine years. Throughout high school I worked mainly with two families. I began working with one family when their children were 6 months and three years and continued working with them for five years. I also began work with a family with one daughter of three years old, and continued serving them after the birth of their second daughter from her infancy. In college I have served one family on at least a weekly basis. I keep two children, ages six and eight. On regular nights, I am responsible for bathtime, dinner, playtime, and bedtime. I have also stayed overnight several times. I have, since high school, been trusted regularly to carpool children in my own car and supervise children while swimming. I am experienced in administering basic medications to children, as well as emergency measures such as rescue inhalers and epi-pens. I am comfortable with completing light housework for the family, aiding in children's homework and school projects, and keeping children otherwise entertained with a variety of activities including crafts, games, outdoor activities and child-appropriate movies.

In the position of a nanny I was in for the last year, I was responsible for picking up, and dropping off the child. Taking the child to any recreational activities. The mother did not mind if we were at my house or hers. And when I was at hers I would do some light cleaning. Scheduling activities for the week. Teaching Shapes, Numbers, ABC's, and so on.

I absolutely adore children and always have ever since I was a child. I love to care for others. I've always looked after my cousins at family gatherings and can't ever seem to get away from them. I have a special bond with children that made me want to pursue a career as a pediatric nurse practitioner. I love working with children of all ages and even special needs children. I've worked with special needs children at school for about a year and fell in love with the students instantly.
