I am a professional nanny here in Austin looking for the next family to truly become a part of! I am signed with several agencies in Austin, but certainly don’t want to limit my options, and most importantly, want to really take the time necessary throughout the process of finding my next position, because it is so important to me to find the family that I fit with the most! I am 24, and have over 10 years working as a sitter and nanny, as my mother was a single mom who raised me at her side as she was working as a nanny :) When I was old enough to "go solo" I really went for it, and have enjoyed every moment! Additionally, in the past I have squeezed in substitute teaching when I could, during the school year, for about a year in a half. As a sub, I often worked in special needs classrooms, so I have some experience with special needs care and teaching/tutoring as well. I have taken well over 30 short notice jobs from this site and similar sites. Through this site, permanent nanny positions, housesitting, agencies, and referrals I have cared for all different ages, from newborn at 0 weeks to 14+ years of age with at least 40+ families across the Austin area. I look forward to broadening care families for short-term care, backup, seasonal, date-night, or house/pets' needs, as well as finding a long-term family, as a full-time nanny/household manager/PA, etc. I know I am highly experienced and qualified for whatever your needs are! If you’re looking for someone who is independent, focused, pays attention to detail, and has common sense, I’m your gal :) Work History: Most recently, I was a nanny for a small family in SW Austin with one infant boy! (From approx. Feb. 2014-June 2014) Shortly before that, I was a nanny for a family in the Bee Cave area with three kiddos ages 10 months, 4 years, and 6 years. This position was from August though December of 2013. The longest nanny job I have had was two years with a family, who when I started in August of 2011, had a 3-month-old baby girl. During my time with them they added to their family another baby girl, therefore extensively adding to my newborn experience and the oldest daughter will now be 4 in May and the youngest just turned 2 years old in November. As with most of the families I have been a nanny with, my relationship with this family is on-going and still continue back-up care, date-nights, etc. but this particular family hold a special place in my heart and I look forward to finding another family to truly become part of again! :) I am also sometimes available on short notice! Feel free to contact for any/all last-minute needs, as I may be able to accommodate! Minimum date-night, back-up care, etc. rate: $15 per hour. Three-hour minimum. Please inquire about exact rate based on job/needs.

I have been working with children for as long as I can remember. I come from a large family and remember there always being babies and children of all ages around me that I had the privilege of helping and playing with at holidays, vacations, summers, and family get-togethers throughout the year. When I was 12 or 13, I began staying overnight to babysit some of my cousins of two different families. One of those families had 2 children, a boy and a girl at the time, and the other family had 4 energetic boys (2 of whom were twins). When I turned 16, I became a lifeguard and swim instructor, at which time I had the opportunity to work with babies and children in the pool on a regular basis over the course of 3 years. Throughout high school, I babysat for various families, even going on vacation with two of those families to watch their combined 4 children. During my time in college, I also found children to babysit and worked as a part-time nanny for a family with 2 children. Besides providing my services as a babysitter and nanny, at the age of 13, I also volunteered as an assistant gymnastics tumbling coach, working with children of the ages 6 through 8. In high school, I also taught at cheer leading camps for children. Over the past 5 ½ years, I worked with children in preschools and elementary schools as a specialized sports coach. I was self-employed in this role and held the position from January 2008 to June 2013. In this role, I instruct children ages 2 through 9 years of age in 7 different sports in order to nurture cognitive, emotional, social, and physical development. For this, I traveled to a different (sometimes 2 or 3) school everyday to coach children who enrolled in my sports program. Each class size was kept small (4 to 8 per class) and was made up of children of the same age. During my busiest season, I was coaching 250+ different students each week, at a total of 8 different locations. At the same time, I worked on the side, as a babysitter/nanny of infants and toddlers (twins included), as well as children age 5 and 7, for several different families, as needed and when the parents went out of town on vacation without their two-year-old twins. Currently, I am a permanent part-time weekly nanny/babysitter for an infant.

I am an experienced nanny so I know what dress is best for dollie, what car is the fastest or how to soothe crying baby! I also am a pretty good boo-boo kisser and a awesome sunggler! I am that someone to play outside when the weather is good, make a snowman when its cold, color in coloring books and make pillow forts when its rainy (or go outside to stomp in the puddles.. Im not afraid to get dirty :) and do projects for holidays. I make sure to incorporate music, reading, arts and crafts, playing outside (weather permitting) or learning colors, letters, shapes (if age appropriate) into daily conversations. I take an interest in them to help develop mentally and althletically (Im still young.. I can keep up wtih the little ones:) I like to go on outings whether it be a picnic or to going to the library for story-time. I started as a mother's helper at 13, grew into a babysitter/nanny and after high-school Au paired in London for a little bit and still going strong at 24. I have had live-in and live-out positions with amazing families over the years. Most of my experience is with infants/toddlers. I am an outgoing, honest, friendly, easy going/down to earth girl who is always caught smiling! I have a good head on my shoulders to make the right decisions. I am also patient and understanding which is crucial with child care. I think my caring and playful nature draws children to me and I like to think that the relationships I have with all the children I have cared for over the years, I have somehow enriched their lives. I enjoy working with children and their endless energy and laughter. I think they are pride and joy and so fun to be around. I love interacting with them and teaching them things (You can learn so much from them as well). I interact with them on the floor, anything that nurses their curiosity. But most importantly your child's safety is first and foremost. I am confident in my abilities as a nanny/babysitter. I find this job fulfilling, challenging and rewarding. My responsibilities as a nanny will include providing your children with kindness and love. I wont be just a babysitter. You become a sister, friend and mentor, maybe I need to add that Ill be your child's personal cook, nurse, teacher, chauffeur, stroller pusher too! :) All in all, I will treat them as if they were my own.
