I come from a big family. My grandma would take care of my 12 cousins and I while we all grew up. I was always her little assistant. So at a young age I started taking on the role as "mom" or as the best care taker I could be. For about three years I was a nanny for a close family friends daughter Alyanna. I was with her from age two to five. Along with watching Alyanna I would babysit my new born niece. To this day I still care for my baby niece (now one). I have also had many other babysitting jobs for close friends and family.

When I was in High School I babysat children who's ages ranged from 6 months to 12 years old. They were kids who lived in my neighborhood.

When I was in College I ran soccer camps for kids who were 6 years old to 12 years old. I am currently working in the kids club at a xx . I take care of kids from the ages of 6 months to 11 years old. I play games with them, read them books, make crafts and color. I try to make sure they are having a fun time but are also learning new things along the way.

I've been a nanny for most of the past 25 years. I started as a babysitter at 12 y.o for an infant and three y.o. Then after high school and some college I started being a live in nanny for a few years. I married and had my son, and worked as a live out for a few more years. Recently I just worked for four years with a family of four but I'd like to find a new family to fill in some down time.
