My nanny experiences began at the young age of 10 years old. I was the neighborhood babysitter. I was a big sister at the age of 9 so I gained early experience helping my mother take care of my little sister. My experiences continued in college, working at different camps and community centers. I was a nanny for a family of 5 after my first year in college. I worked at community centers in the summers each year while in college. I was a xx camp counselor at xx camp in Colorado. In 2005, I was a nanny for 2 different families. One family had 3 boys with one girl on the way. The other family included a 5 year old and 3 month old. I worked for both of these families for just over a year. I was a nanny for a Raleigh family, the xx, in 2009-2010 for a 3 month old boy. I continue to help the xx from time to time. Currently, I help the owner of xx for her 5 year old and 11 year old children on an as needed basis. I babysit for various families in the evenings when needed. Being a nanny has always been my favorite and most rewarding job. In addition to my childcare experiences, I am an aunt to 7 neices and 7 nephews ranging in ages from newborn to adult. I have been active care taker in the lives of my neices of nephews beginning from birth and continue as some of them are now adults. My best friends from home has me listed on their will as the legal guardian for their 3 year old daughter, Stella. It was quite an honor when they asked me to be a legal gaurdian for Stella. As a nanny I encourage active play and activities such as art, music and reading. I like to do games with children such as, scavenger hunts, swinging statues and board games. I advocate healthy eating habits and being outdoors as much as possible. I am a kind, tidy, creative, patient, mature and active nanny with mid-western values. I will provide the best childcare for your family, while guiding your child/children in their development.The families I have worked for have been exceptionally happy with the childcare I provided and I have exceeded their expectations. In return, I have been honored to be part of loving and caring families.

I babysat a 2 year old girl, and her 8 year old sister, 3 days a week from 7am until approximately 6pm for 3 months in the summer. I was responsible for preparing and cooking 2 meals (occasionally 3), playing both inside and outside with the children, tidying up the house, and helped with potty training for the 2 year old near the end. I was nannying for a girl starting when she was 7 until the age of 11. I would arrive after school and help her study for tests and complete her homework. I would then prepare a balanced dinner for her and eat, and then move on to either more studying or playing together. I was responsible to help her do well on her school work and make sure she ate healthily. I was an on-call babysitter for about 2 years for a family with 4 children: 5 year old twin girls, 9 year old boy, and an 11 year old boy. I mostly came over on Friday evenings or all day on Saturdays. I prepared the necessary meals and stayed home with them to play games either inside or outside together. I babysat for a high school football coach's children every Friday night during football season one year. He had four children, an infant girl, 2 year old boy, 4 year old girl, and 6 year old girl. I was responsible for preparing bottles for the infant as well as other normal infant care (diapers, rocking/naptime, reading to her, etc). The boy was getting potty trained so I was responsible for following that routine to help him progress with that. I prepared dinner for all of them and had to assist heavily (since they were young). As usual, we played a lot of games together and often read books. I also was responsible for bedtime for all the children and going through their nightly routine to get ready for bed.

My nurturing side came out very early in life. I have two younger brothers whom I absolutely adore, they are my best friends and I can confidently say I am their mentor, their rock, and the person they turn to when times gets tough. In 2004, when I was 14 and my brothers were 10 and 7, my mother passed away. With my step father always gone for work, and my biological father being passed since 2000, I stepped up to the plate. Before I knew it, I was cooking breakfast in the morning and getting my brothers off to school, helping with homework, doing laundry, and making sure my brothers had dinner every evening. I soon became mama-sister. My brothers and I bounced around to a few different foster homes and ended up with my grandfather. He was terminally Ill and not capable of physically helping out much, so I took on another task... I began setting the table for 4. It wasn't the ideal situation but we were all together and happy. My grandfather always taught us the value of life, learning, family, and becoming something of yourself. In 2008, my grandfather lost his battle to cancer, I was newly 18 but my brothers were minors and I knew where they would end up. I got an attorney and we went to court... Months later, the 3 of us were all together again. I was back to making breakfast in the morning, and the daily routine chores of a family while teaching them the value of life along the way. Everyone who meets Brandon and Cameron always thrive on how well mannered and genuine they both are, they're intelligent and full of success. I like to think I have something to do with that. :)

For almost 5 years, I worked as a Jounior Counselor, Senior Counselor, Assistant Head Counselor, Lifeguard, and Swim Instructor. I watched over children from ages 6-16, year-round. I completed training courses, CPR, and ligeguard courses. I have not been re-certified in any of the above but I am very familiar with the courses and I will be happy to get re-certified in anything. I currently have seven neices and nephews ages 1-12 who I watch when I can. After I graduated college, I worked with a family with 4 children (7, 7, 13, 16) for 4 years and still see them regularly now. Their 13-year-old son was hospitalized several times with a brain injury so there were many times where I would stay with the family for a week at a time and manage the house while parents were in hospital. I left the family because I started graduate school to study child development and child life specialty and I have now finished my first year with a 4.0 GPA. My second year does not require me to attend any classes on campus because I will be taking an online class and working on my thesis at home. Last year I worked as a research assistant on campus but because of budget cuts, that positon has closed. I am getting married in December and my fiance and I are paying for my schooling and our wedding ourselves so I need to replace my research assistant check with other work.

I have been working with children throughout my teens and college career. My experiences with children have come in the form of babysitting and being a preschool teacher. During high school I worked after school at a preschool with the two-year-old and three-year-old class rooms. Along with every summer, since 2006, I have worked at the same preschool as a preschool teacher working with every age group, from infants to twelve-year-olds. My daily routine would consist of feeding, changing, creating intriguing and thought provoking activities for children as well as adhering to a daily schedule that best fit the children's needs. I was often asked to join different age group rooms to assist when needed because of my flexibility and expertise of working with different age ranges. I really enjoyed my time at the preschool and interacting with the children. While in college I have had the pleasure of babysitting for a few families in the Raleigh area. I have cared for children ranging in ages of one to twelve. I have enjoyed developing those relationships with the children and their families. While babysitting I prepare meals, develop activities that the children enjoy as well as follow a schedule that parents have provided and prefer. I am an education major and am completing my student teaching this semester where I spend my days with kindergarteners. During these days I am providing knowledge to students in ways that interesting while still enabling them to learn. I also constantly ensure that the children are safe and surrounded in a nurturing environment.

I was a nanny for five years for a couple in Sandy Hook, CT, with two children. I started when the youngest was 13 months and the oldest was 3 years old and I stayed with them until I started my Master's degree. I was responsible for morning care, school lunches, school transportation, after school care (when they became of age), homework assistance, meal preparation and serving, all laundry duties and cleaning the house. I worked with this family during my undergraduate degree, and we still have a wonderful relationship today. I have additional experience with newborns up until 13 years old from babysitting cousins and family friends previous to my nanny position. I have a Master's degree in Clinical Social Work and I worked with at-risk youth and families with youth with behavioral disorders for two years.
