Hi! My name is Kira and I have experience being a babysitter, nanny, tutor, preschool teacher, and Child Personal Care Aid. I have provided care to children with a variety of different needs. My background includes experience with children who have suffered from Down Syndrome, Batten Disease (neurodegenerative disease with side-effects such as blindness, extreme anxiety, dementia, and more), fetal opioid, alcohol, and other drug exposures, asthma, ADHD, and more. I love crafts, adventures, reading, and snuggles! I am willing to tutor young children in varying subjects and am able to come up with developmentally-appropriate activities, as well as implement exercises or activities from therapies your child may attend. I am comfortable administering medication, accompanying to medical appointments, preparing meals, and more. I look forward to meeting you and your family!

I interviewed Kira and would have offered her the nanny position caring for my infant son. However UNEXPECTEDLY at the last minute, a good friend of the family offered to keep our son for us so we no longer needed to incur the expense of a nanny. My husband and I are both lawyers and are very particular and Kira "passed the test" with flying colors! She is personable, has a great personality, is organized, and is very mature and responsible for her age! We hope to be able to hire her in the future!
