I was an Au pair for two years in Gaithersburg, Maryland, and I took care of two boys. They were 2 and 5 years old when I started taking care of them. My experience was amazing, and I love those kids. My duties were to feed them, drive them to school, help with homework, play, do arts and crafts, take them to the library and playground, do laundry, keep the kids' area clean and organized, run some errands, and a lot more. I still have contact with the family, and I go over to visit them very often. I had a great experience being an Au pair. It made me fall in love with the child's world. I love children. During my period as an Au pair, I also took care of almost all of the neighbors' kids, and some of my host family's friends' kids. Their ages were from around 7 months to 8 years old. When I finished my period as an Au pair, I moved to Florida for six months, and I was baby-sitting for a family that has three kids, ages 14 months, 5 years, and 8 years old. During a period of one year, I had some temporary experiences: - November 2008 a family in Alexandria, VA, with three kids; 3 1/2-year-old twin girls, and a 4 1/2-year-old boy. - December 2008, a family in Bethesda, with two girls, ages 4 1/2, and 14 months old. - Jan 2009 to June 2009 I worked for a family in Rockville, with three kids, ages 10 yrs old boy and boy and girl age 7 (twins) - April to July 2009, a family in Arlington with 8 months old twins girls, now they are 5 years old and I still babysit them - I also worked for an Air Force family, with a 5 1/2 y/o girl and a 4 y/o boy. I started working for them in July 2009, they moved to PA in January 2010 so I started working for a family with a premature newborn girl and a 2 year old girl, I stayed with them for 1 1/2 year, but they moved to a house to far from mine, so I started working a family with a 2 year old boy and she was pregnant of one more boy, I worked for them for two years and unfortunately they also moved too far away. I'm currently doing a nanny share since February with 2 little girls, they are 19 months old.

I have been babysitting for over a decade. I have worked in a daycare center, and summer camps. In college, I worked as a part-time swim instructor for children of all ages, and still give private swimming lessons. I have completed 3 years of nursing school, including my pediatrics clinical rotation, which I aced. I plan to enroll in a few classes next semester and work slowly towards finishing my RN. However, currently my main goal is to earn money doing something I truly enjoy (care-taking). I moved to Florida in January to care for my 91-year-old grandfather as his full time home health aide. I worked around the clock for him for 6 months. I did any and all household chores. I cooked 3 diet-appropriate meals each day, drove him to places at his request, and provided all of his medical care. Most importantly, I was his full-time companion. He has since left, but I plan to stay and make my life here in South Florida. Most recently, I cared for a 9 week old infant and 6 year old girl as well as a husky in a one room hotel as a temporary position for the past 2 months. As you can see I very much enjoy working with children. I also am very organized and dedicated to assisting in daily chores, errands and housework. I am energetic, encouraging and creative, with a genuine passion for working to help children learn and grow. I am exceptionally patient and have the ability to remain calm even in the most chaotic situations.

I can understand your hesitance to hire someone a little young, but I can ensure you that I can do a great job taking care of your little ones. I have 8 years of experience babysitting and being a nanny and there's no other job I would rather want. I have most experience with 2-7-year-olds, but I have dealt with a little younger and a little older, and am very open to learning. I also have much experience with special needs as I grew up with a family member who deals with it. I work in retail right now (until I find the perfect family for me) so I'm definitely a people person. I'm also outgoing and energetic and can keep up with kids running around all day. I love being active and outside all day, as well as eating healthy. I also don't mind if you need help around the house, I cleaned houses for a few years so that's no problem, and I have no problem running errands, laundry, grocery shopping, taking kids to activities, etc. whatever you need. I have a family friendly SUV. My schedule is a little more flexible than what I selected, I can come in a little earlier and a little later and don't mind working a few weekends when needed. Thank you for taking your time to check me out.
