You will hear this from everyone’s page: I love children. I really do, but because of my past, that allows me to be so passionate about kids. I have a huge family, there are five kids in my family, and my extended family, each aunt and uncle had at least three kids. I babysat for my aunt and uncle who have four children, the youngest at the time was two years old and the oldest was 13. I also babysat my neighbors children, youngest at the time was a toddler and oldest was seven year old twin girls. My latest experience was working with a 9-month-old baby girl. My sister and brother had babies in July of last year so I have worked with infants through the baby and now toddler stage.

I began babysitting at the young age of 12. I was always a very responsible child and loved looking after younger kids. I babysat from 12-16. At the age of 16 I became a nanny for a large family with a disabled child. This experience was so rewarding for me. During this time, I not only tended to the children, but I cooked, ran errands, and did house cleaning as well. I ended up working for that family for 3.5 years. After I graduated high school and moved from junior college to University, I moved cities where I began to nanny full-time for another large family with 3 kiddos (ages ranged from 3yrs-14yrs). Again, I not only tended to the kids, but also served as a personal assistant to the parents as well. I traveled with, ran errands for, and cooked for this family as well. I ended up staying with this family for over 6 years! I grew very close with the family and even stayed with them after I graduated college for awhile. I got married recently which is what brought me to the Houston area. I love kids and would love to work with your family. I currently have a Bachelor's Degree of Science in Psychology, and I am working toward becoming a child-life specialist.

I have been a nanny for two wonderful families with amazing children--enjoying every second of it! I have worked with infants, toddlers, and school-aged children. Both families I nannied for had me transport the children to and from school (and any activities) , help them complete homework and chores, tutor them in subjects they were not as strong in, and spend time completing activities that were both fun and enriching for the children. I worked closely with the parents to ensure the children were happy, healthy, and progressing. I feel comfortable caring for, tutoring, and spending time with children of all ages. I look forward to my next nannying experience!
