12 yrs of experience

I have been a mother' s helper for as long as I can remember, and once I was old enough I began babysitting neighborhood kids. As a junior in high school, I worked at a local daycare where I had a class of about 20. In my senior year of high school as well as throughout college, I picked kids up from school, drove them to sports activities and cooked their meals. I absolutely love children and am ready to get back to work with them as my full-time job.

Previously, I worked in Roanoke, VA as a Qualified Mental Health Professional for children. I worked with children that hold a developmental diagnosis and I taught them new skills, functional living skills, and behavioral management. I left that position to move closer to my family in Northern, VA where I have been working as a Human Resources Coordinator for the past year. I am moving to Fishersville in May and am looking for a full or part time nanny position for any age and/or amount of children.
