I have been a nanny for many Dr.s and like long term situations. I have cared for newborns up to school age. The last few jobs I have worked, I started when the 1st child was newborn and stayed with the family until they no longer needed me. I have done many different things for the entire family but my passion is caring for, training and loving children. I have transported children to and from pre-school and various other activities, soccer,swim lessons, tennis lessons, gymnastics, french lessons, Dr. appt., etc. My specialty is newborns and infants. I have been dubbed the "baby whisperer" by one family! I love children and can communicate on their level and understand how they think!

Good Day! My brief description would be I'm a fun-loving babysitter. I simply enjoy spending time with children. I pride myself on being able to play and act goofy with the kids, yet still have them listen and respect me. I love taking children to interactive & fun activities such as the park, zoo, plays, etc. But I can also spend the day at home coloring, dancing, and playing eye spy. It's very easy for me to connect with kids. Keeping the child's well-being is something I take very seriously. I'm a healthy balance of an easy going/patient attitude, and assertive when needed. I understand the importance of my role, and I'm willing to take on that responsibility. My references are by request. Thank you!

I started as a "mother's helper" when I was 10 for a neighbor who was a stay-at-home mom and needed an extra pair of hands. I continued to babysit throughout my neighborhood during middle and high school. In college, I joined a referral service and nannied for several families through the years. In total I have about 12 years experience with all ages of children and some disabilities. I am comfortable with twins, multiples, and children with disabilities or autism. I love kids and hope to be a mother someday!
