I love and adore children of all ages; but, I specialize in newborns and twins. Being a nanny is not only a job for me; it is my career and has been for the last 18 years. I have had the pleasure working with great families and seeing the children grow and develop in my care has given me the most pleasure. I was happy having the experience and hope, it will continue in the future with a new family, where I not only am an employee but also asset. I also have traveled with some of my families.
