Hi there! My name is Missa! I am a recent graduate from The University of Arizona where I studied psychology, nutrition and pre-nursing. After graduating, I moved from my hometown of Tucson, AZ, to Honolulu, HI, where I accepted a position as a live-in nanny for an incredible family. Having never been to Hawaii, booking a one-way ticket there was quite the adventure! I cared for an adorable 3-month-old until she was about a year and a half. I loved that I was able to actively participate in every step of her growing and changing.
I am very confident in my abilities to tend to children from infancy through adolescence due to my extensive 9-year childcare resume. I treat the children and families I work for as if they were my own! References upon request.
I am also experienced with housekeeping, cooking, and running errands. I do appreciate a tidy home so if there are household duties to be done, I enjoy doing those as well! (Laundry, dishes, ironing, organizing, vacuuming--you name it!) If you ever need some extra hands in the kitchen, I'm your girl! I love to cook! I think it might be because I'm Italian and Spanish. :)
Some activities I love to do with the children are take them to the zoo, create arts and crafts, go on a picnic in the park, go swimming (I'm lifeguard certified and water safety instructor certified), and go on bike rides! During the summer months, I think it's fun to make homemade ice cream or popsicles!
A little bit about me:
I enjoy stand up paddle boarding
I like going on walks in the park (or on the beach)
I love painting and art projects
I drink copious amounts of coffee
I love traveling and exploring
I am always trying to learn something new (My latest attempt is to learn to speak Italian fluently!)
