I am currently finishing up business school and in the near future I would like to open up a child oriented business of some sort. Being a nanny for the past 3 to 4 years has been a true blessing. I love meeting new families as well as becoming part of their family. I love being active with the children and doing fun activities such as swimming, coloring, dancing, going to the aquarium, and much more. I am excited to see what the future holds.
