I’m a nanny because I love families very much, especially designing a unique program to support them to grow, transition, and prosper.
My past childcare experience I have a master's in marriage and family therapy and I specialize in families with children and couples! I have been a long-term nanny three times and a skill's trainer for foster care children for a year. I was a behavioral health specialist for the Department of Education on Maui.
Additional comments I am honest, loving, and nurturing! I make every day a special day and want to contribute to families and be a great role model to teach ethics and encourage a loving environment. Recently I have been caring/ supporting couples and even elderly clients which has been a wonderful experience as well!
