Hello! Well, at this point in my life I have quite a bit of experience with kids. I’ll start with my favorite and most recent job involving kids...being an aunt. I have the best niece and nephew I could imagine and love them to death. They are four months and two years old, and unfortunately recently moved several hours away. I make sure I skype with them regularly, so they don’t start liking other aunts and uncles more than me. I have babysat kids of all ages for at least ten years when called upon and nannied two elementary school aged boys throughout a summer several years back. Not to mention I was one of the oldest children in my family, which comes with a natural responsibility to look after and care for those who are younger. I have coached 3rd and 4th grade boys and girls teams, facilitated and taught 5th and 6th graders for three years in two separate positions (one in urban setting, one in camp setting) creating and leading various classes to encourage physical activity, teamwork, outdoor education, and personal growth. I have taught classes all the way from rock climbing and archery to team building and arts and crafts. I have worked multiple summers at various camps counseling both high school and junior high campers. One of those summers, I led my campers on adventure trips, taking care of transportation, buying and preparing of food, cleaning, packing gear, keeping campers safe and building relationships all at the same time. It was the ultimate job in multitasking, building relationships, staying creative and active, and maintaining safety awareness. Because of my experience at camp, I have been and am currently lifeguard, wilderness first aid, and American Red Cross CPR/First Aid certified.

I have been a nanny for the past 18 years. I have excellent references and letters of recommendation from all my employers. I am a certified Infant Care Specialist. I specialize in newborn infant multiple care. I am cpr/first aid infant/child and adult certified. I have my current flu, whooping cough vaccinations as well as a clear TB test. I have a federal background check (clear) as well as background checks with the agencies. I am very experienced with multiples. The first baby I was a nanny for is 18 now. I was with him for 10 years. He still calls me and comes to visit. I think that is my best reference! For the past year I have worked solely with premature newborns as a night nanny. I have excellent references for all of these jobs.

Hello, Families! I just moved to the wonderful city of Austin from the cold and snowy back drop of Wisconsin! I am a very energetic, dependable, loving and caring 34 year old, with a cheerful, positive and respectful disposition. I pride myself on my integrity, patience, and honesty. I have been caring for children for as long as I can remember, as I am the 2nd oldest of 9 children. I have a natural way with children and they always enjoy me as much as I enjoy them. I enjoy working with children of all ages. I am someone who loves the outdoors and believe that too much TV is never a good thing. Playing outside, playing games and encouraging children to use their imagination is something that I am passionate about. I feel the most positive thing I can do for any child is help them learn to be self-sufficient. I love to cook and can make pretty much anything, special diets are no issue for me. I do not have any problems doing some light housekeeping (picking up after the children, doing dishes, occasional children's laundry, etc.). I am excellent at making super fun (healthy) snacks for children! I am pet friendly and do not mind caring for your furry little creatures while I am at your home. My experience aside from all my siblings is varied and I feel is an asset to any task I undertake. I was a camp counselor for three years while in high school. I was an active volunteer for the local domestic abuse shelter and the boys and girls club for years. A few years ago, while my brother was in the military I lived with my brother & sister-in law and their 4 foster (now adopted) kids when their biological mom lost custody of them. They were newborn-13 at the time. They were all born premature and with special needs. I was a nanny for them for about two years. I have worked for single parents, same sex couples, divorced parents, and everything in between.

As official nanny experience: for one year, I provided afternoon care for two children ages 3-4 and 6-7 with active school and extra curricular lifestyles. This was a wealthy family in Washington, DC, who very much relied on my ability to responsibly manage their children's schedules starting with pick up from their respective schools each day. My tasks included helping with homework, light food preparation (lunch, snacks, and occasionally dinner), preparing activities and playtimes to engage the children, coordinating play dates, providing transportation to and from school and other classes and activities, keeping the house picked up, and encouraging good behavior between the two. In addition to my actual nanny experience, I also have years of teaching credits, primarily in theatre arts and interactive drama. I worked as both a professional actress and teaching artist for 4 years, teaching children from ages 4 to 18 in private and camp style sessions. I believe this experience is a huge asset in working with children, helping them grow, and learning to use their imaginations!
