I’m a nanny because I love helping, and caring for others of all ages. This has always been in my nature! Bringing joy, inspiration and changing others' lives for the better is what brings me joy. I would love the opportunity to share my skills, experience and huge heart with your family.
My past childcare experience I have spent the majority of my life working in childcare. At a very young age, I began babysitting my younger siblings. I went to college for Elementary Education (K-8) and also hold a Teacher of Reading Certification (K-12) in NJ, and a (K-6) in Florida. While going to school, I worked as a substitute teacher and teacher's aide. Along with all of my practicums and student teaching, I worked as a daytime nanny to triplets during the first two years of their lives. I also worked as a nanny for a family of 5 with children ranging from infant to 9 years old. I worked as a teacher and tutor in Camden, NJ for five years with children having emotional and behavioral difficulties in an Alternative out of District placement. For summer employment, I have worked as a teacher of students with severe disabilities, a tutor, as a counselor in a behavioral program, and also as a live-in aid to a woman with Cerebral Palsy in Philadelphia. I moved to Naples in August of 2012 for the weather. I had been considering switching career paths and going into Child Therapy/Social Work for a few years, so I worked as a Child Welfare Case Manager for the State of Florida, which I was VERY passionate about. Along with that, tutored, and I nannied on an as needed basis at an agency for families vacationing in the area. I recently moved back to NJ to help in caring for my 93-year-old grandmother. I have also gotten back into theatre, film/tv which is another passion of mine. I will also be Substitute Teaching again, so my schedule is very flexible.
