I have worked as a temporary nanny for a friend. I was living with her while she went to home births and her husband worked. I took care of her three children, two boys ages 4 & 6, and one girl age 2. I was watching them all hours, due to birthing being something you cannot time and her husband being a police officer. I also lived with this couple prior. The boys were 18 months and 3. I was there whenever they needed a babysitter. I have worked the nursery at my church on several occasions. I also have babysat for family and friends. I am currently working with two families, four nights a week, doing in home therapy with their autistic sons. I love this job so much, as it is challenging, but so rewarding. I love learning, and I get to learn while they do too!! UPDATE: First family I mentioned, I lived with them again and helped out with their 4 kids over the past two summers. We went on a ton of adventures in Northern Wisconsin and had a lot of fun! Their family grew from 3 kids to 4. I now longer work with the autistic boys, I moved away and had to find a job elsewhere.

Hi! My name is Mariah, I am 24 years old, with 7 years of nanny experience. I've nannied for ages 1 month to 10 years and love my job. I'm honestly just a kid at heart and look forward to one day becoming a school teacher. I originally had planned to continue in nursing but ultimately decided to stick with my passion of working with children. I speak fluent Spanish and am willing to teach it to the children I care for. I'm also very athletic, i play soccer and have been for the last 17 years of my life. I love reading, writing and art (not the best artist though, but i definitely try). I'm very open minded and love to get creative. All in all, I'm really looking forward to working with children and making a positive impact on their life.

My first job as a nanny was a live-in position for two years, for a five year old girl. I was next employed by two doctors with four boys who when I began working for them were ages 2, 3, 5, and 7. Two of the boys are now in college and two are in high school and driving. So unfortunately, my services were no longer needed. I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of their family for 13 years and still keep in touch with them. I truly enjoy being a nanny, I find it a very rewarding job.
