I have basically been taking care of children all my life. As the oldest of six children, I had a lot of responsibility to help take care of my younger siblings. I have been a paid babysitter since I was eleven years old, providing quality care to 100+ children for many families over the years on a regular and occasional basis. I have taken early childhood education courses and hold the Child Development Associate Teacher Permit from the California Commission On Teacher Credentialing. I moved to Utah from Dallas, Texas in May 2014. I worked as a nanny for a year and a half for the most wonderful family, with toddler age twin girls and a preschool age boy. I moved to Dallas, Texas from California, in May 2011, which meant having to leave the child care center I had been at for 6 and a half years. I worked with children ranging in age from 1 to 6 years old. I loved being around the children! I loved talking, playing and teaching the children, and I loved learning from them, as well. I miss the shouts of delight and the hugs I would receive from the children when I would enter the classroom. I have also been a part-time nanny for a few years to a sweet little boy. He was 2 years old when I started watching him and now he's 12! I still keep in touch with him and his family.

I've been babysitting since I was 10 years old, and I've always been good with kids. I've worked with children of all ages, many with disabilities. I was a nanny in Germany for my aunt for a year, but I also worked part-time for another famil. Mostly with their 2 year old, but also with their other 3 children aged 5-12. I also worked for a company doing an after school program with kids with disabilities who were in foster care. I worked there for 4 months until I left for school. It was a very challenging job, but I loved it. I absolutely adore children. Most recently I was a nanny for a British family living in Utah. I was with them for two years, and even moved home to England with them to help the kids transition.
