Baby Whisperer & Toddler Pro — Manchester, NH
My Experience & Philosophy: From the age of 11, I've been caring for infants and toddlers, who always seem drawn to me and very calm in my presence. I have changed literally thousands of diapers and feel very comfortable supplying a baby's feeding, sleeping, changing, and bathing needs. I love baby snuggles and when they take their naps in my arms. When they're awake, I constantly talk and interact with them: We play, we go for walks, I'll sing to them, and read. With toddlers, it's somewhat the same except obviously more active -- playing outside, arts & crafts, etc. -- and I take care to encourage their budding independence, self-confidence, and sense of being capable. I foster a true connection with babies and toddlers and they seem to like being recognized for the fully human, inherently worthy, lovely little beings that they are! Who I Am: I am a musician, dancer, linguist, avid reader, and incorrigible world traveler. Along with my husband, I'm a recent transplant to Manchester (and loving it). I'm eager to continue my long tradition of childcare, which always entails not just keeping children safe, but actually growing them as human beings. I am patient, tender, warm, empathetic, engaging, and caring. My Background: I am the firstborn of 4 children, all home-schooled in Western Iowa. I was highly involved with the foster children my family took on when I was a teen, worked as an Au pair in Italy and German (caring for infants-5-year-olds) in my early 20s, and most recently cared (long-term) for a spunky 5-year-old girl in 2011-2012. Short-term, I just cared for a 6-week-old girl earlier this week and enjoyed lots of sweet cuddles. Every Friday morning, I video call with my little nieces and nephews (four of them ages 0-5) and read them books: "Story time with Auntie Laura" is one of the best times of the week for me. I love it! Related Experience: In addition to my years of childcare experience, I also worked from ages 17-21 as a Certified Nurses' Assistant in a number of senior living homes. I quickly became known for my patience and genuine compassion-residents would respond positively to me even if not for anyone else. I also have many years of elementary education experience. I've tutored and taught German, piano, and dance for a variety of ages. I even had my own foreign language education business a few years ago--over 600 total students were in my courses! What I Offer You: I am a nanny who you can trust in your home. I am honest and reliable. I arrive on-time and leave your house even better than I found it. Loving your child is my #1 priority, but even when they're sleeping, I'm still working for you! Thus, I am willing to help with light housework, laundry, meal preparation, etc. I have my own dependable transportation, am not allergic to anything (bring on the pets!), am a non-smoker, and would gladly renew my CPR and First Aid certifications. I honor your wishes for your child, communicate directly and with emotional intelligence. I function as part of your team. I am always on the look-out for how we can do something better, more efficiently, more effectively. Your child's best interests are at the forefront of my mind. I am totally the type of person who would sooner have my arms go numb than disturb the baby sleeping in my arms. I offer you my years of diverse experience, my character, and my heart.

I have worked in Healthcare facilities for over 25 years. My interest in the field began when I started my first full-time job working at Villa Crest Nursing Home for 5 years as an Administrative Assistant and assisted the Recreation Department Director with the patient activities. I then accepted a position at Chiropractic Associates of Bedford as a Front Desk Assistant and Certified Chiropractic Assistant working one on one with the patients performing modalities. Most recently I managed 3 Physical Therapy Clinics for Apple Therapy Services. I also opened up a Medicare clinic, Theracare Physical Therapy, for the owners of Apple Therapy, which mainly treats the elderly. I had extensive interaction with the patients to include making their appointments via phone and in person, explaining their insurance benefits and answering any insurance questions they may have. I helped my family care for my terminally ill mom at our family home for 2 years. She passed away in 2002. 5 years ago my father, who is 89, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. He currently resides at a Nursing Home but again, I helped to care for him at home until we had to place him in the Alzheimer's unit 2 years ago. I visit him several times a week, take him to his doctors appointments, to the grocery store, to concerts (he loves music!)and other activities to stimulate him and get him out with people which he loves! I resigned from my position at Apple Therapy in pursuit of finding a position to help people and make a difference in their lives. I am energetic, caring, compassionate, and definitely love working with the elderly. I hope you consider me to help out your family member. I look forward to meeting with you.

Detailed Organized Housekeeper — Manchester, NH
As the oldest daughter of seven children, my mother trained me to be a housekeeper. I was her assistant growing up. I have always done light housekeeping when I have had babysitting or nannying positions. I am a very detail-oriented and organized person. I love organizing things! The kitchen is my playground. I love cooking and baking and have years of experience, so meal preparation would be a privilege, not a responsibility.

At this time, I am a certified elementary and special education teacher. As of January 2015 I am a graduate of Rivier University. I substitute daily for the Manchester NH School District. Often I provide care and assistance for students with special needs. Also, I run an after-school program. As the director of the program, I am responsible for 40 students ages 5 - 11 for three hours a day. I assist and monitor homework, plan outdoor and indoor activities, manage behavior and plan snacks. I teach curriculum to the students in a large group setting and I direct staff to manage the craft that was planned for that day. I absolutely love working with children. I have had a lot of experience with infants, as I have had many opportunities to care for my nephews and niece. There isn't an age group I am unfamiliar with. I have been told I am very laid back. I try not to sweat the small stuff. I have always pride myself on being honest and reliable. I love to be active and outdoors. My favorite things to do is to go on bike rides, hikes, walks, swims, if it is outside. I love to play games. You see a whole other side a person or child when you play a game with them. I feel like it's a great ice breaker, rainy day thing to do.
