I am one of five children myself and have been babysitting and helping with childcare since I was a young girl. I love kids, and am enjoying being a new aunt! It is usually difficult to find a nanny job that fits just right, but I miss it too much to be working elsewhere. I know CPR and adult/child/infant first aid, although my certification is expired. I lean more toward craft and activity than I do technological entertainment, as much as I can. I also volunteered in many nurseries and social events. I am currently available 24/7 and have my own transportation to/from work. I am fluent in American Sign Language, as well as interaction with children with special needs, emergency/allergy protocol, mild behavioral issues, etc. Pets are DEFINITELY not an issue either! I am interested in live-in OR live-out, and I am more than willing to get re-certified in CPR and first aid training.

Thanks for your consideration,
and good luck!

I have always been the babysitter/caregiver in my family and other residents in my hometown. Not only did I care for the kids in our family, but I also took care of my dying elders. I have many references and have taken care of alot of people for many years. Helping people is a rewarding feeling, I like knowing I make a difference. At the moment, I care for a disabled veteran who lives a couples doors down from me. I take care of his errands, cook, clean, and I have developed a friendship/companionship with this patient. I have worked for him for going on five years now. I will always be there for him too, as I still take care of him today. I know that if you hire me you will be pleased with my skills as I am certified in basic childcare first aid, cleaning, cooking, and much more. Thanks
