Hello! Here is my story in a nutshell: I would describe myself as being a happy-go-lucky person with a huge caring heart that enjoys the simple things in life. Funny, caring, compassionate, dependable, trustworthy and patient are all words that my family and friends would use to describe me. I pride myself on my honesty and integrity, as well as my great sense of humor. I have raised 4 children of my own, but I am now an "empty-nester". I began babysitting at age 14, at which time I cared for newborn twins on a regular basis I had numerous babysitting jobs all throughout high school. After graduating, I attended Mid-State Technical College and completed a degree in Early Childhood. I have worked in many day cares, as well as implementing the preschool program in the church I attended. I have also worked in public schools for a total of 15 yrs. as a teacher's assistant. I miss spending time with and caring for children and I would love to secure a position as a nanny.

I just moved to Wisconsin from MN and I had my own house and my own daycare there. I loved it. It was my favorite thing to do! I did a lot of babysitting before that. I think education is very important and also getting the kids outside to play. Its not fun to be cooped up inside all day. Its not good for the nanny or the children. I get very close with the children that I watch. I am still close with every child I have watched in the past. I would do anything for any one of the parents Ive helped.
