Meet Alexandra

I'm a 24-year-old former college student looking for a part to full-time nanny job. I'm from the Kelso area in WA and have been around young ones since I was very young. When I turned 18, I started full-time nannying for a Doctor with two kids who were expecting their third. I currently still work for them on Fridays. I also spent some time as a live-in nanny on the coast for a family who are lighthouse keepers and restaurant owners in Yachats, OR. I have been working for a family for the last year taking care of their wonderful four children 40-70 hours a week. I... more
I'm a 24-year-old former college student looking for a part to full-time nanny job. I'm from the Kelso area in WA and have been around young ones since I was very young. When I turned 18, I started full-time nannying for a Doctor with two kids who were expecting their third. I currently still work for them on Fridays. I also spent some time as a live-in nanny on the coast for a family who are lighthouse keepers and restaurant owners in Yachats, OR. I have been working for a family for the last year taking care of their wonderful four children 40-70 hours a week. I have been a nanny for the last 5 years consecutively, along with numerous years of babysitting throughout high school. I have experience with newborns (including preemies) and pretty much every age to 11. I have worked with children who have special needs along with a child who has Asperger's. A child I currently watch has extreme food allergies, so I have administered Epi-pens and am experienced in allergy-free, vegan and vegetarian cooking/baking. I have read many parenting books including the Positive Discipline series that mirror my form of discipline implicating "talking-it-out", solving and communication to correct troublesome behavior rather than direct punishment. I can do housekeeping, cooking, lunch-packing, errands, etc. I also have worked with cloth and other eco-diapers and am comfortable with washing the diapers. I have a 2010 Corolla that has all car seat attachment capabilities, which I am comfortable transporting children to activities. I have amazing references and positive experiences with all families I have worked with. I am studying psychology to head toward a career in child psychiatry. I have taken college courses in nutrition, developmental psychology, lifespan psychology, numerous human development and family relation classes; a lot of math and science but let's hope that will never need to come into play. I'm very fun and outgoing with children and especially handy when it comes to art and craft time. I engage in pretend play and outside time versus having kids being plugged in. I am comfortable with a nanny cam as long as I am given a heads up. I go to Washington State University online, my school doesn't really affect my day so I am extremely flexible with my schedule. I promise your kids will be safe always and have a ton of fun.

Alexandra started working with us in June 2010. It is hard to describe Alex with words like superb and excellent because she has surpassed any adjectives I can summon. She has become a part of our family. Our children adore her and she does whatever she can to make our family environment peaceful, orderly and fun. We have enjoyed having her in our lives and know she will excel anywhere life takes Alex and... More
