Last position was a live-in nanny for a 5yr old boy & 10yr old girl. This position is in Orlando & I wanted to be closer to home in Brevard County. I have raised my 22 and 23-year-old college students! I was approved by the state of Florida for a 2-year-old child to be placed in my home for two years. I have twin nephews with ADHD, who are now 20 years old, whom I have had in my home throughout their lives, providing the same love, security and support like my own. I am very active, "never been a couch potato"! I love to travel & I bring fun along with that including doing my part to make the time spent well worth it for all. I am an honest & open communicator with the highest of integrity bringing years of life experiences to positively make any employer/family very happy to have me around! Parents can know their child is taken care of and spending their time where they should be and what they should be doing and then some! I am a happy person and thank God for each day given to us so I really enjoy being around a happy family but understand life's ups and downs and I've been told I am a good listener and provide positive guidance when asked or needed. I hope there is a family in Melbourne/Beach side, Florida that needs someone like me so I can live at home while my two college students are still home! My daughter graduates May 2012 with her RN degree & my son graduated with his EMT but starts Firefighter School in January for 1.5 years. My parents & sister live in Melbourne & Satellite Beach. So, Melbourne or beach side family....You need ME!

I have been babysitting & been a nanny for over 10 years. Have sat for family, friends, others responding to my add & so on. I have taking care of children from newborn & up. I love children & have since I was little. I'm always the one that the kids want to be with & play with. I get down on their level & I love to play games, do crafts, play with their toys, help them build a train set or if there a little older I'll be right out there with them playing hide & seek & chassing them around the park. I cannot wait to start a family of my own but am just waiting for the right timing hopefully in a few years. I have lots of references, a clean background & driving record, non smoker. I will be more then happy to also take care of your pets & tidy up the house so that everything is takin care of for when you get home.

I am currently working as a "super nanny" for a family of 6 kids. I have been with them for a few months and I am continuing until I move. I work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with a few breaks but I love my job. I do everything from potty training the 2 year old twins, helping the older kids with their homework, running them to practices, and helping their 4 year old son with down syndrome adjust to life in school. I was a teaching aide in first grade that has had 5 years of experience with children ages 4-16 and I have a God-Daughter whom I have been in her life frequently since she was born so I have a lot of experience with raising her. I have 3 1/2 years experience raising a newborn and I have many years of babysitting experience before that and I absolutely LOVE children. I have also been a Nanny for a couple in Elmira, NY with twin 15 month olds and a 10 year old as well as a part-time Nanny for a couple with 3 children (3 months, 2, and 4 years old)
