I’m a nanny because It is my calling. It is what I do naturally...be motherly. I enjoy meeting people, helping ease their day and I really love to play with kids! Play involves education, relaxation, exploration, role playing, explanations, fun, boo-boos that need tender care, drama, school preparation, and so much more! I plan to help cuddle babies in hospitals that were born with special needs issues like inter-uterine drug problems. I believe that babies are humans with rights from the moment of conception! They need me...us...to be their advocates.
My past childcare experience I began caring for neighborhood children at age 12; became a mother at age 23 and have 2 daughters; I was fortunate to be a stay-at-home mother and babysat too; I was a live-out nanny for 2 years while I earned an Elementary Ed. degree and a Special Education degree and taught Spec. Ed. for 5 years in Missouri; I was a foster mother for 2 years while teaching; I came to MD in 2012 to care for my grandson and help my daughter. I have been building my childcare portfolio ever since. I have clients from several sources and am an Advanced Newborn Care Specialist (Day and Night), so juggling a schedule is crucial. I enjoy providing temporary or permanent care. I have certifications in Breast feeding help, tongue and lip tie identification and how they inhibit good breast feeding along with other certifications. I have cared for and taught children 0-13, mainly 0-10 most of my life. I have cared for 2 babies with G-tubes at home and in the hospital.
Additional comments I am a member of ADCAN (Association of DC Area Nannies) and am an Advanced Newborn Care Specialist through the nationally recognized, Newborn Care Solutions. I am a lifelong learner and teacher...moment by moment!! I look forward to meeting you and hope you feel compelled to meet me as well!
