I have been taking care of children my whole life! My mother had a day care when I was younger and I come from a family of 8 kids. I also have a brother with autism and an uncle with Down syndrome so disabilities are no problem for me! I started babysitting on my own at 13 and it was for a family of 4 with a new born. I have always been very mature and responsible for my age so the family had no trouble trusting me with them. I was a junior lifeguard at 13 and had my CPR and first aid training that I renew every year. I babysat almost every weekend for neighbors, friends, parents from school, etc until I started working two jobs at 16. I got my first nanny position that summer and fell in love with it. Last year I worked part time at a child care building with kids ages ranging from newborn to 9. I am currently a nanny for a family of 4 with kids ages 9, 12, 13 and 14. The family is wonderful and I am very lucky to have the job I have but those ages are a whole different side of nannying. I'd prefer to get back to taking care of little bundles of joy :) I have so much more fun taking them to the park and doing arts and crafts and just having a wonderful time!

I have over 10 years of child care experience ranging from being the neighborhood babysitter to a swim instructor and coach, lifeguard, mentor, and a nanny. I have worked with all ages of children and have experience in round the clock care for sick children as well. Recently, I worked for two wonderful families - each with a newborn and a toddler. Prior to that, I worked in pediatrics as a nurse's aide in a hospital in Illinois where my true love of working with children was reaffirmed. It was there that I got to spend Valentine's day making Valentines with children and Halloween parading the hallways in our "costumes" - a dream job. I love children and find a tremendous amount of joy from being around them. The little things that they say and do can teach you a lot about yourself.

I have always loved children and babies. I first started over night babysitting when I was 11. From there I have not stopped. I have 5 nieces and nephews that I love to spend time with and look after. While in High School, there was one family in particular that I babysat and nannied for on a regular basis, until i graduated and left for college. I watched their two eldest children grow up from toddlers into elementary school age and and was there from birth to toddler years for their youngest. Close friends and family started calling me the "baby whisperer" from a very young age.
