I started off babysitting when i was around 9 years old for my baby sister. Both of my parents were busy on weekends with work, during that time i cared for my newborn sister. I have always been taking care of her when another adult isn't around. I began to nanny alone when i was 11 years old, for a few neighbors down the street after school. Since then my name has been passed from family to family, giving me the chance to care for their children along with light house keeping duties!! I enjoy all the families i have nannied for, i have nannied for about five families each ranging from 6 months to a year, 4 times a week. Sadly, they have al relocated due to their husbands job.

I nannied for a family in Marietta, GA for an entire year before they no longer needed my help anymore. I watched a 9 year old girl who I grew extremely close to. I still go see her from time to time when I have breaks from school. I picked her up from school and helped with her daily homework assignments. I also drove her to after school activities. I watched her for the entire summer as well where we did fun activities like go to the pool or park and we also had to do some homework exercises over the summer to keep her up to date!
