I was raised in a home where my mother provided child care services to school teachers' children. At the age of 12, I began baby-sitting children. While in college, I baby-sat professors' children as well as being a part-time nanny for families. I graduated with a B.A. in Psychology with a concentration in Child Psychology. Initially, out of school, I counseled adults and continued to baby-sit. I have worked as a Lead Teacher in a nursery school and as a teacher in an after-school program. I worked as a Membership Manager for the xx in Massachusetts and Virgina. The last ten plus years, I entered into the business world where I did accounting/cost accounting/analysis. I enjoy working with children and they seem to enjoy me. Currently, I am very involved in the children ministry with my church:during the school year, VBS,Track & Field Outreach Clubs, assist with Sunday School and Nursery. From 1998-1999, I was a part-time nanny for a families 1-year-old girl. From 2000-2001, I baby-sat for her on weeknights and weekends. I also house and cat sat for them when they were out of town. I took their daughter to the playground, biking, walking, played games with her, did crafts, took her the Children's Museum, etc. I still remain in contact with the family and feel they are an important part of my life. I began babysitting a families three boys in 1989 when they were ages 2, 5, and 8, and continued to baby-sit the boys until they were all in eighth grade. I watched them full-time during the summers when able as well as weekends and weeknights during the school year. I ran errands, assisted with housework, played games with them, allowed them to have other friends over, made them meals, took them swimming, to movies, etc. To this day, I remain in good contact with them. They have turned into family and consider me like a sister and daughter. Currently I part-time sit/nanny for various families with children ranging from 7 months old - 9 years old.

I have been babysitting for family, friend's, and even my high school teacher's children since I was 13 years old. I went to a community college back in PA, where I am from, for about 3 years. I went for Elementary Education. I "student taught" a 2nd grade class as a part of my assignment, and ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!! I moved to VA in October of 2009. I love working with kids and watching them learn and grow. I was a nanny for a FABULOUS family in the Short Pump area, and I ABSOLUTELY love them! They are my family away from home. I was with them for a little over a year, but needed something a little more "full time". I am currently a manager. I am a very hard worker and definitely make the kids my top priority.

I have 20 years of nanny/infant&toddler teacher experience and have been blessed to work as a nanny for many wonderful families. I have worked with newborns along with their siblings, twins, and school age children. I enjoy being part of family and someone the parents can trust and count on in all situations. I love and adore children and because I am a confident and positive person I can help the children become that way as well. I am creative, artistic, and fun so it has made being a nanny a wonderful career for me. I attribute much of my experience, skills, and abilities to the families for giving me the opportunity.
