Hello, my name is Alexis and I am a Cum Laude graduate of Meredith College. I studied Fashion Merchandising & Design & Business Administration with a concentration in HR. Personally, I am a very dependable, dedicated, fun, loving, & people person! I enjoy working with children & fostering their development academically & socially. I have lots of experience as a mother helper/house manger , nanny, child transportation, swim supervisor, cook/meal prep, teacher, & occasional babysitter for a variety of ages. I also have experience working with children with autism (age 4). My favorite quote is "children teach us what life is" & I see this each and everyday. Other: I enjoy providing care for pets; in addition to providing care for children, I have experience as a companion aid for the elderly & assisting in personal assistant task & transportation. I have personal assistant experience of over 3 years for professionals in the area.

Alexis is amazing. She has helped me a few times now, and has always been great. My 3 yr old doesn't always take well to strangers and he is totally comfortable with her, even to the point of going to bed without seeing me. She also works well with my 8 and 10 year old. My only complaint is that somebody found her before I did on a full time basis. lol

Creative, Active, Loving, Experienced Nanny Ready To Help A Family In Need

(2)
I began my career as a mother's helper in Virginia Beach in 2003 caring for a special needs child of a single mother. This was a live-in situation and I became a member of the family. In addition to caring for the 7-year-old girl, I was given the opportunity to babysit for the family friends of the woman I lived with. Their ages ranged from 2 to 13. Some were incredibly gifted, some were autistic, and one was schizophrenic. To this day, I keep in touch with everyone of them. When I went to college, I also nannied, this time was not a live in situation, but I picked the 9-year-old boy up from school everyday and helped with his homework, cooked his dinner, and played with him until his dad got off work at 9. I also was on call for a fellow classmate with 7 and 11-year-old girls. My babysitting philosophy is an active and engaging one. No one wants to hire a nanny that will stick their child in front of a TV. Especially children who are not of school age, kids require mental, physical, artistic, and emotional outlets. This means quality time outside, running around. This means quality time engaging in meaningful conversation and expressing oneself. This means expanding a child's creativity, whether through cooking, drawing, or play-pretending. This means spending time reading, writing, in museums, or practicing a skill. The other half of my sitter philosophy is that molding a young person into a respectful citizen requires discipline and the expectation that manners and respect are a deep consideration. I truly believe that nannying is as beneficial to the sitter as it can be for the kids, as long as you keep the right attitude and are willing to learn everyday! I am majoring in philosophy and theater. I love acting, dancing, hula hooping, reading, and being outside. I grew up at the beach and have loved the water since I was a baby.
