I have been interested in children and infants since I was a child. I started babysitting about 10 years ago. I have worked in schools with children of all ages. I love young children and I am comfortable around newborns and infants. I was an Early Childhood Education major before switching to an FCHD major (Family Consumer and Human Development) with a dual emphasis in Child Development and Family and Community. I graduated in May 2012 from USU. I also have a Gerontology certificate that allows me to work with the elderly. In addition, I am getting a Postpartum Douala certification through college that will allow me to work with mothers, newborns and their families after the birth of their child and assist in any way to help ensure a smooth transition for the family. I have worked with after school clubs, preschools, and the infant lab at USU. I have also worked at the 3-year-old preschool class at the USU Child Development Lab, the Children's House, and taught various elementary school classes. I have been helping children with special needs/disabilities since the first grade. I recently married into a family in which there are 24 children between the ages of 26 and 5 years old. Only 4 of these children are biological, the rest have been adopted from around the world and half of them have various mental, physical and developmental handicaps. I also have experience caring for twin infants (bottle feed and cloth diapers). I have been a nanny for a family with 5 children (4 under the age of 7) and one of the children had special needs. I have been a full time nanny for a family with 2 kids ages 3 and 5. I have babysat (brought my son along) for a family with an 18 month old and a 3 year old. In April 2012, I had my first child (boy) who is easy going, well behaved. I have a Minor in Special Education (I will be state licensed to work with children with disabilities from 0-3 years old), and a Major in Family, Consumer & Human Development. I have been helping those with special needs since the first grade in various settings and ages. My in-laws have adopted 20 children and half of them have a wide variety of mental, physical, cognitive or developmental disabilities. I was a nanny for a family who had a 5-year-old with Cerebral Palsy (I also have a cousin with Cerebral Palsy). I have cared for those with autism, RAD, developmental delays, wheelchair bound, and even one who was missing a large portion of the brain and could not talk, walk, see, or care for herself. I am comfortable with special needs terms and care and can easily learn what is needed for specific families or individuals.

I am 22 years old, and I know I am young but I have a ton of experience. I started my first nanny job when I was just 17 years old for a family that lived on my street. I feel in love with the Evans and loved helping them with anything they needed. Their youngest Zoe was premature and they oldest Ian was Autistic, life was not always easy while watching them and finishing high school but I made it work and loved every second of it! I would clean, do laundry, cook dinner and watch the kids. I am a firm believer in getting kids active and out of the house, I was always taking them to the zoo, museums, parks, doing arts and crafts with them. When I was 19 I decided to move to Scottsdale Arizona in July 08 to help my sister out with my beautiful niece. My sister and brother in law are both chefs and so they had late hours so they were not able to put her in daycare so I wanted to move to a new city and help her out with niece. While I was down there I got another nanny job to help pay for my bills. I watch two little toddles ages 4 and 2 for a single mother. I would help with cleaning and getting dinner ready so when the mother would come home dinner would be ready. After a year when my sister and brother in law decided to moved back to Utah I made the decision to move with them and continue watching my niece. We moved back February 09 and I watched her until December 09 until I got a job at a mortgage company. I have been working for the mortgage for two years now but still did a lot of baby sitting and part time nanny jobs on the side. I love working with kids, teaching kids and being an example of kids. And right now in my life just looking for something new and I don’t think Utah is that place I want to be. So please if you looking for someone fun, responsible, and respectful nanny please feel free to contact me  Thank you

I have 7 years nannying experience and have been babysitting since my early teens. My first nanny job was as an AuPair in France for a family with 3 boys age 5, 7 and 9. I then worked for a family for 2 years. I looked after their first 2 children starting when they were 8 months and 1.5 years, then as they had their 3rd and 4th children. I have since had short term baby sitting jobs looking after children from newborns to age 12, in single and multiple child homes. Most recently I have held a job looking after an 8 month old little boy and for another family looking after their 5 year old daughter and 2.5 year old son.

I have 6+ years of babysitting experience including families with twins and families with four or five children. I love kids and I have would much rather read to them or do something active than put them in front of the TV. I think it is very important to try to understand children so that you can respect them and help them feel safe, comfortable and confident. I think that most children are very bright and simply need support to help them learn and grow. Last year I volunteered weekly at a children's hospital in Salt Lake City where I had the amazing opportunity of interacting with patients from all walks of life. I also spent one year volunteering as a peer mentor to a young girl in my community with special needs and I am so grateful for all that I learned from this experience. I am a very calm person in stressful situations and I am very responsible especially when it comes to children. I have completed First Aid/CPR certification every year for the past five years and while I am grateful I have never had to use my skills, I am confident that I would be able to if needed. I just finished my third year of college and am interested in taking a year off to gain some real-life experience and to spend a year living in a new area before returning to university to finish my degree. I have spoken Spanish since I was five years old and I have worked as a tutor in math, science, reading and english.
