Hello everyone! I am recently retired, 59 years old and a grandmother to two beautiful granddaughters who are 8 years old and 5 years old. Since retiring, I have nannied for 3 wonderful families. I totally enjoyed their children and felt good about being able to help working moms. I also spent a school year working in the YMCA after school program where I received CPR and first aid training. I enjoy watching kids learn and grow. Kids are so honest and they make me laugh. I am constantly engaged with the children I watch - helping with homework, baking, doing crafts, shooting hoops, pitching softball, playing Barbies and fairies, singing, dancing, going to the park and other activities. I feel it is important to keep kids active by making activities fun for them. I am very active myself and am not one to sit around. But there is nothing wrong with settling down for an occasional movie when things need to quiet down. While I was still working full-time I did volunteer work as a youth mentor, Sunday school teacher and youth group coordinator. I raised two children as a single parent and fully understand the pressures of working while raising children. I feel that contributing to the welfare of children is one of the most important jobs one can do and I will do my best to provide fun and laughter for your children in a safe and loving environment. You will find me to be flexible and extremely reliable and truly concerned for the welfare of your children and your needs as a family.
