I have been working with children since I was basically a child myself! I was the oldest of four children and would regularly babysit my siblings as well as children in friends' families. This led me to working in a children's camp, volunteering as youth leader of a church and eventually becoming a professional Nanny. Four the past eight years, I have been a professional Nanny. I have worked with several families with varying needs. The families had children ranging from 6 weeks to 14 years old. They had as few as 1 child and as many as 6 children. I have done everything from changing diapers to potty training, homework help and help with homeschool work, driving to events and errands, helping design creative playroom areas and planning parties, and so much more! My experience also includes caring for twins and children with allergies. I also have experience with natural remedies in carrying for the health of the child in my charge.
