My past childcare experience: I use to work in the Medical field for 15 years as a Medical Records Tech and a little bit on the Clinical side of Medical Assistant. I decided ten years ago to do what I love, Nanny! I've been working as a full-time Nanny in Virginia for ten years, total of three families. I love all of my children. Love is the best way for me to describe all of my experiences. I'm the same mom and protector that I was with my son. Thats why Full-time, live-in or out is so important to me. Kids get attached as I've learned, detachment can sometimes affect both sides. Routine is important...It's healthy and it balances! Today, I make sure I keep in contact. Kids never forget!

I was raised being 7 years older and 5 years older than both of my brothers. My mom at times was incapable of taking care of them, and with my dad's work schedule I took care of them 75% of the time. Growing up I've always had a love for children, and worked in my church's nursery on a regular basis. Also helping out with Bible School every summer with infant-5yrs. I babysat for several families with in my church. After my senior year in highschool, i moved in with a previous teacher and helped her and her husband raise her two children. I lived with them, and was also able to keep a side job do to the flexible schedule. Which is not needed now.
