I have been babysitting since I was 12. Throughout college and even as an adult professional and while a missionary in Mexico, I continue to babysit for friends and family. This has included overnight care, transport to and from school and activities, and even light experience with Aspergers Syndrome/SID. I spent two summers in high school as a full-time summer nanny for two families who were friends. They had 2 children each ages 6-9. I spent five days a week with them preparing daytime meals and snacks, playing, helping with educational enrichment, and transporting for regular outings. I worked in the play center for a local country club full-time for 7 months and then on weekends and school holidays after returning to college to finish my degree. We often had 5-10 children in the play center at one time ranging in age from 8 wks old to 6 or 8. Duties including playing, changing, soothing, snacks, etc. I was a part-time nanny for a baby girl for 6 months and then did occasional babysitting on weekends after returning to college. She was 8-weeks old when I began and 6 months old when I returned to school. I continued to babysit occasionally for the family after their 2nd and 3rd child were born until I moved away from the area after college. My senior year in college I was the after-school nanny for three school-aged girls. The oldest was 12 and the other two were twin 9-year-olds. Duties included picking them up from the bus, getting them home, preparing snacks, helping them with homework, transporting to activities, and occasional evening babysitting. After 3 years in the corporate world and four years living in Mexico as a missionary, I have spent the last 2 years as full-time nanny to triplet 2-year-old boys. I began with them at 10-weeks-old just as they came home from the NICU, and I have cared for them alone 10-12 hours/day 4 days/week.

*Available June 1st, 2012* I'm currently a full time, live-in nanny to two sweet girls, Addison (20 months) and Berkleigh (8 years old), in Richmond, Virginia. I also take care of Max, the crazy golden doodle puppy, and Hocus Pocus, the rabbit, and help keep up the house, cook meals, grocery shop, etc. We three girls love running around at the park, reading and trips to the library, making messy crafts and good things to eat, going on picnics, and playing make-believe. In addition to nannying, I tutor at a local Huntington Learning Center and substitute teach in two counties. In 2010, I finished a Master's degree in Teaching at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia and student taught 1st grade and 5th grade. I currently hold a teacher's license for pre K - elementary in both Virginia and North Carolina. After graduating, I moved to Taiwan and taught Engilsh, reading, and writing to 50 rambunctious Chinese-speaking students! I had four different classes, ranging in age from 5 to 14. It was an exciting and valuable experience! I learned so much more than my students. I've been a babysitter and nanny for the past 12 years- every age from infant triplets to a 14-year-old. I've planned and led summer camps for kids in innercity New Jersey, the Navajo Reservation in New Mexico, and a conference center on the coast of Oregon.

I nannied for a wonderful family starting when I was in college. I was hired a week before the first child was born and stayed with them till the 2nd child was 6. I still visit them on a bi-monthly basis in Charlotte. I will always be apart of their family. Recently after leaving the elementary school I was working at to finish my Elementary Masters, I have worked with a teacher I taught with watching her two lovely girls, 15months and almost 3. The recent family's home life has changed which is leading them to not be able to use me now. So I am searching for a new loving family. I have also babysat since I was 13 years old for numerous Richmond families, and have a long list of glowing recommendations.
