I love my career as a professional nanny because I adore children! They inspire me to see the beauty and miracles of everyday life. I am happy to be a very positive, creative, and charismatic person who has a special gift with children, and a natural maternal instinct. The loving interaction, safety, and exceptional care of children are my deepest passions.

I have had the privilege of being a career nanny for over 15 years. My extensive childcare experience began as a college au pair for a fellow student and close friend. My professional credentials include nanny shares, twins/multiples, travel services, mother's helper, preschool instruction, resort activities coordinator for Disney World guests, and dance instruction to children ages 3 years to adolescence. I have Early Child Growth and Development certification (10 credits), provisions for Leukemia special needs care, diligent "green" health and safety practices, infant/child/adult CPR and First Aid, ECGD "Student of the Month" from W. Wilson H.S. (1995), Student Senate Page/School (92-93), noted on the Dean’s List at the University of Washington, Seattle (Biology, Dance, 1995-97), TrustLine friendly, planning to obtain Doula and Newborn Care Specialist certification in 2018, currently certifying traditionally as a Reiki healer practitioner, and continuing my studies in Cognitive and Child Psychology in 2020.

My special skills and interests dwell among the healing, visual, literary, and performing arts. As a singer, trained dancer, thespian, poet and writer, it would be my pleasure to introduce and share my artistic talents and creative endeavors with your young. Every child deserves age appropriate interactive play and developmental growth activities that are designed to enhance a stimulating and well-rounded learning environment.

My experiences have taught me that each child is special and unique. Children function best physically, emotionally, developmentally, and socially when nurtured in a loving, attentive, positive and harmonious environment that is safe and secure. Ideal developmental processes foster a positive self-concept, self-esteem, confidence, respect for self, and respect for others.

I am honored to inspire an infant's smile, witness a child's innocence, profoundly influence child growth and development, enthusiastically guide the progression into adolescence, and eventually, adulthood maturity. I trust and take pride in the fact that the impact I make is a beneficial contribution to society. 

I'm looking forward to being an outstanding advocate for your precious progeny, providing the highest caliber of childcare services to prospective family candidates, and continuing to exceed professional expectations, as career nanny that is committed to the phenomenal world of children!

I'd be happy to forward my professional nanny credentials, including my resume, nanny profile response - providing an in depth look at my childcare philosophy and personality, educational background - the sciences and performing arts, and references - available upon request and pending a first interview meet and greet.

If you're interested in my nanny employment candidacy, feel free to contact me!

Most recently I was in charge of 9 girls on my own ranging from the grades of 4th-6th for a week. I had to be with them 24 hours for 5 days in the mountains at a camp. My combined group with the male counselor had 7 boys as well within those grades, so between the 2 of us, we had to watch 16 kids and be aware of the location as well as watch for their safety at all times. I have babysat all my life with various ages starting with infants all the way up to 14 year old children. I have experience in the Children's Ministry at church that I would do twice a week.
