I have helped many different families over the years including some with 4 children at a time. I am passionate about what I do and I take my responsibilities seriously.I Have worked with a close friend as a nanny watching anywhere from 2-7 children ages 6 weeks- 8 years old for the last 4 years. I would fill in on days she wasn't available or we would nanny together when there were a lot of kids. It was so much fun. I love to teach and help young minds grow.

over the past 10 years of babysitting, I've taken the kids on bike-rides, to the pool, played indoor/outdoor games, anything that kept them active. I also did light-housecleaning, cooking, and ran occasional errands for the family. I have been babysitting a total of 11 years, for many different families. One of these families includes a boy who suffers from M.S. Through this experience, I have learned a great deal about helping children with disabilities, and how to provide everything they need. I learned so much about kids and all of their similarities and differences; be it their likes/dislikes or their temperament.

I do not have any children of my own, but am at the age where many of my friends and family have young children. As a teenager, I babysat quite a bit. My brother has 4 children, and 2 of them are twins. I helped them out as much as I could by watching the girls overnight and helping them when the babies were small. I'm good with small children and know how to offer them an structured environment and understand healthy eating. I had a past long term relationship with a man that had a 2 year old. During these few years, I had the "crash course" of mothering a toddler.
