I have been babysitting since I was 12 years old, and have taken a few positions as a live-out nanny before. I have also watched over as many as six children at a time and cared for mentally handicapped children. I like working with children because I grew up in a large family, and taking care of my siblings came naturally to me. I believe having that experience gave me a heart for children and a desire to work with them. I've had my fair share of pets and done plenty of pet sitting as well, and am comfortable with pretty much anything except snakes. I completed a CNA course (certified nursing assistant) in Maryland and was licensed but had difficulty transferring it to Virginia, I am in the process of getting certified in Virginia as well. I am also trained as an opera singer and have had a little success in that field. I am a great lover of music and dance and have had a wonderful time getting kids up and dancing on rainy days. When the weather is nice; however, I'm a big believer in getting outside and in the sun as much as possible.

I have known Sarah for about 18 mos now. She has been a caregiver and driver for my son during this period. I will tell you that you won't find a more reliable care provider. I work shift work (early mornings, weekends ) and Sarah was there no matter how early or how bad the weather was. If she could help out- when my son got ill at school- she was there to pick him up and provide care until I got home. I am sorry that she is moving back to Norfolk and wish that she would have stayed. She got along well with my son. I would highly recommend Sarah. You will be lucky to get her. Feel free to contact me for any additional info.
