While attending school in Los Angeles, I had the wonderful opportunity to be a nanny/mother's helpers for two separate families. The first family had two girls, ages 3 and 5, whom I cared for three afternoons each week while their mother ran errands or had alone time. We did a mix of activities at home and in the surrounding community, my favorite being our weekly park visits. Unfortunately this position ended after a little less than a year when the family moved out of the area. My second position as a nanny/mother's helper was for a family with a 5 year old boy and a baby on the way. For the first six months, I cared for Milo three days a week and did light housecleaning and errands for his mother. Again, we did many different activities at home and around the area, although Milo's and my favorite pastime was curling up on the couch with a good book (our favorites included all of the Harry Potters and His Dark Materials). When Alice was born, the position changed a bit as the mother and I tried to balance out time with both kids, and I extended my hours to 5-7 hours every weekday. Some days I would stay with the baby while Annie had some alone time with Milo; other times I would have both children so that Annie could have a break; and sometimes I would simply help around the house doing dishes and laundry while Annie spent time with the kids. I stayed with this family for a year and a half, choosing to leave when I finished my degree and moved to Minnesota. My experience with this family was wonderful: I had the amazing opportunity to know Alice from the week she was born and to see/help little Milo adjust to the many roles of being a big brother!

I come from a big family with many cousins and distant relatives younger than me. Because of this, my unofficial childcare experience began when I was around 10- I had to watch my cousins on the weekends. Their ages ranged from 2 to 8 years old. At about 13 years of age, I completed a babysitter training class at the local hospital and became CPR and First Aid certified. I also took a medical class in high school that gave me a more in depth First Aid training. I began to babysit for my neighbors who, at the time, had children that were 4 and 7 years old. In addition to that family, I babysat for countless other families with 2-3 total children, ranging from 1 to 12 years of age. More recently, I acted as a nanny for a day for a family of three children during an official Louisiana state ceremony that occurred last spring. In addition to my babysitting experience, I have steadily watched and helped take cafe of my nephews and niece, who are currently 7, 4 and 16 months. My 16 ,onto old nephew was born 2 months premature and had to wear a breathing and heart monitor for 5 months, so I a experienced in dealing with children who have certain needs.

My experience caring for children stems from being the oldest of five children. I became a Red Cross certified babysitter at 12, and began regularly watching family friends and neighborhood children, which I have never stopped doing. At 16, I started life guarding and teaching swimming, which I have continued to do consistently, allowing me to master the skills necessary to be CPR/First Aid certified (current). I have taught swimming to children of all ages and abilities, as well as several children with autism, a service I could offer as your child's nanny. In college, I was a Resident Assistant, and though that is technically not taking care of children, it did further develop my ability to deal with crisis and the stress being away from family can place on someone. In 2011-2012, I was a live in au pair in Toulouse, France, for two little boys ages 4 and 5. The experience I gained from that job did not only change my life forever, but it gave me the confidence to know I can handle any nanny work, as it was 24/7. Most recently, I was a nanny/personal assistant/curatorial assistant to an amazing mother in Boulder, Co. I am confident in my ability to care for your family.
