I am outgoing, very responsible, and fun to be around. I have been in the childcare field for over 10 years. After college, I worked in Social Services helping children. Then, after my daughter was born, I focused on working for families in their homes. I was a part-time nanny for 3 years. I cooked, cleaned, drove, and assisted with any other needs. I also nannied a 1 year old girl. This was full-time. Due to her age, the focus was on her physical and emotional needs. She was very active. I basically did all of the things with her that I did as a mother for my own child. This gives me a broad base of childcare experience from infants to teenagers. Now, I am looking for a part-time childcare job. My schedule is flexible and I am willing to work with your unique needs. Overall, I sincerely care about the development and well-being of children. It would be my pleasure to help nurture and care for your children.

When I was 9 years old, my baby sister was born, and I have been involved in child care ever since. I began babysitting as soon as I could acquire a "babysitter's license", when I was 13 years old. I cared for a two-year-old boy during the summer and on the weekends for three years. I also was a regular babysitter for many different families with children between the ages of 3 months to 8 years. In high school, I realized that child care and education was the perfect field for me, so I took classes in order to obtain an assistant teacher certification. I became a part-time nanny for two different families and stayed with those families through college. After high school, I earned an Associate Degree of Applied Science in Early Childhood Education from Madison College. For the past two years, I have been running my own family child care business in my home with up to three children, providing high quality care and education for multiple children.

I am passionate about creating an environment for your children that would be fun, educational and would reflect your goals for your family. I do not have a current background check available however will be willing to request one if necessary.

My first child care experience was when I was 12 years old I had just taken the babysitter course and a friend of my mom's needed a babysitter. This lady was a foster parent and had 6 children, 2 infants, 2 toddlers, 7 year old and a 9 year old. Then at 15 I was a summertime sitter for a seven year old boy and his 8 year old cousin. Then the following school year I worked in my mom's in home daycare and continued to work for her until I moved to Kenosha when I was 23. I became a foster parent so that I could foster my niece. Then the summer after my 24th birthday I babysat/nanny for 2 school aged girls. Then in September I became the nanny of a newborn baby girl and in May I had my son. So I the past 15 years I have gained lots of childcare experience.
