*Update* I am currently not seeking work due to my COVID-19 concerns. I have over 10 years experience as a pediatric nurse, and have been nanny for babies, infants and toddlers past 12 years both in Europe and USA. Prior to nursing I had experience as an Au Pair and a nanny. I have a very nurturing, patient and loving approach to child care. I believe that children are amazing and that when you take the time to see the world through their eyes you will also see how shiny and amazing life is. I enjoy singing, reading and playing with children. As well as helping them learn through fun activities and positive reinforcement. Depending on age of child/children I enjoy trips to the Zoo, small hikes and generally being outside and finding new adventures. My husband and I have a 4-year-old son and live in SW Portland.

Annabelle came into our lives when our very colicky daughter had just turned 6 months. We often laugh now that her first day at our house was a trial by fire, because our daughter was NOT going to go easy on anyone at that point! Lucky for us, Annabelle wasn't scared off by our tiny fuss bucket. In fact, she rose to the challenge! It didn't take long for Annabelle to become like family to us. She was AMAZING with our daughter. The two of them constantly went out exploring the neighborhood, going on play dates, and generally having fun together. Since I work from home, it can be challenging to establish a good nanny-kid dynamic, but it was never ever an issue with Annabelle. (Probably because hanging out with her was more fun than spending time with boring old mom!) When I had my second baby, Annabelle cared for my daughter while I was in the hospital. I was nervous my daughter would be crabby or threatened by the new baby, but nope! She was just excited that she got to sleep over at her house! Saying goodbye to Annabelle was one of the hardest parts about leaving Portland. (Trust me, I tried to bribe her to move to Chicago multiple times. No dice).
