Shenandoah Junction, WV Nannies

Amanda G. - Seeking Work in Shenandoah Junction

11.42 / hour

my past experiences have always been happy and joyful ones. kids bring out the light inside of me. my longest nanny job was with one family for two years consecutively. I started with them in august 2013 when their son was two months old, and in march of 2015 their daughter was born and I cared for the two of them simultaneously. it might have difficult juggling everything, but I was just as much of a natural with one child, as I am with two, including one being a newborn, and I handled it with ease. I have a lot of love to give to any child willing to take it.
