Fun-Loving, Responsible Nanny Looking To Become Part Of A Wonderful Family
I believe that care giving is the perfect job for me because I have always been very compassionate, and I love to see people happy. Children just make the "job" that much more fun and exciting.
A lot of people who know me will say that I have a child-like personality, so kids seem to warm-up to me quickly. I love being outdoors and going on "adventures".
Whether it's fishing, hiking, bike-riding, I always try to find something interesting. I'm big into swimming in the summer months.
I am happy to be CPR certified, so that families can feel secure. Going to the park, city museum, and the zoo would all be things I would love to do with your child(ren).
As for indoor activities, I am very willing to help with learning activities (flashcards, reading, etc.). I believe it's important to find ways to make learning fun for kids.
I will strive to make things as structured and laid-back as possible. I do enjoy T. V. & videos games in moderation, but believe we can find a lot more fun in staying active and using our imaginations. :)
In my free time, I enjoy fitness, going to concerts (I'm a big oldies, classic rock fan, but listen to everything), having fun with my 1-year-old niece and siblings, cooking for family & friends, thrift store shopping, funny movies and relaxing (me time!). :)
I am really into my Christian faith. I have no kids, but cannot wait to have my own someday. I graduated from Missouri College for dental assisting. I love dental but want to expand my options.
I am continuing my education to become a nurse in the future. If I find a wonderful family who I hope to stay with throughout me finishing my degree, I would make sure to schedule my classes around the hours that my family needs me.
By the end of November, I will have taken my certifications in CPR, FIRST AID, and MED-LEVEL 1 (distribution of medications).
I offer a great amount of experience, compassion, and attentiveness and truly put my all into my family. I hope to find an amazing & appreciative family looking to welcome me with open arms!
