As the oldest of 6 children I will say that I have had experience caring for, nurturing, and playing with children since I was about 4. My mother and her friends would always leave me to babysit the younger children. As I grew older, I found that I had a particular gift for it! I babysat all the time while growing up. I was a summer camp counselor for two summers. And over the past 2 years I have nannied for 3 families and worked in a preschool with 2 year olds. I have experience with infants starting as young as 6 wks. all the way up to children as old as 13. Given my major in school, I can also create an organized fun and educational atmosphere! I am CPR certified and I would love to talk more with you about what, specifically, I can bring to your home and children!

I have 5 younger brothers and have been changing diapers, making meals, doing laundry, and coming up with games and activities to keep them occupied for as long as I can remember. I have been babysitting for families in my church and neighborhood since I was 13 years old. I have babysat for infants up to school age children. In the summer of 2009 I was a full-time nanny for two boys. And the summer of 2011 I was a full-time nanny for a brother and sister. In the winters of 2010 and 2013 I worked as a ski and snowboard instructor at Massanutten. I primarily worked in the children's ski school and was responsible for not only making sure that they had fun but that they were always safe. My title was "instructor" but in many ways I was a glorified babysitter. I mean that in the best way possible. This was one of my favorite jobs ever!

I worked for 2 1/2 years as a nanny for the same family. I started working for them when the girl was 4 and the boy was 6. I worked 5 days a week 5-6 hours a day during the school year and 8-10 hours in the summer. The boy had type 1 diabetes so I am familiar with counting carbs and administering insulin shots. They also had 2 large dogs and a cat as well as chickens. I prepared meals for the kids and helped with their homework. I transported them to and from their after school activities and Dr. appointments.The family I worked for became my family too and I loved the kids as much as I would love my own kids.
