I have been babysitting since I was 10 years old. I have 4 younger siblings, so my mother put me to work as soon as she could. I also babysat for other families in town. I have done daycare before, for a year, and I absolutely loved it. Most recently, I have been a nanny for a family nearby. Their son is 15 months old now, and I've been with them since he was born.

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.
