Ever since I can remember I have loved the responsibility of being an older sister and eldest cousin of six. Two of my cousins were born with special needs which has taught me the importance of proper patience with children. Since my cousins require special attention I value making difficult children smile even more.
During all of high school I volunteered at the Public Library and while assistant coaching basketball with my Dad. I have pursued working with little ones in college by volunteering weekly at the Crisis Nursery on campus where I am responsible for caring for children ages 0-10 years old. Therefore, I am experienced in planning creative crafts and imaginative play while ensuring a safe environment. I have also worked as a waitress for four years and as a caregiver in the dementia unit of a nursing home. I believe my work experience and life goals demonstrate I am a confident, compassionate, and competent nanny. I hope I can spark some safe fun in your kiddos summer!
