As a girls’ Athletic Director at a gymnastics club and consecutive years as a Nanny, it was rewarding to help kids achieve their developmental milestones. I felt inspired to work in a high-profile family in Florida where I role-modeled & worked as a team with the child’s grandparents. I was in full charge of the child and spent many days alone with the child while the grandparents were travelling. Successfully developing a clear structure while consistently setting boundaries created a close and trusted relationship with the family. I strongly believe in consistency and patiently teaching kids that rules are not bendable. Once used to it, kids develop a deep sense of trust. Knowing that this is a safe and structured environment that allows them to grow into their full potential. Having lost my mother at age 12 to cancer, I can relate to and have worked with traumatized children many Read more times. I am bilingual and speak English & German. As a trained lifeguard, I love the water & swimming with kids. I am passionate about nutrition, cooking, and sports and hold a Master of Engineering (M. Eng.). I am excited to meet your family! SKILLS: • Experienced in achieving developmental milestones • Excellent multi-tasker & organizer of activities • Excellent communication skills • Calm head under pressure • Exceptional reviews from families • Bilingual: English & native German • Certified Child and Baby First Aid/CPR/AED • Advanced nutrition & cooking skills • Proficient in setting boundaries • Experienced with teaching table manners • Lifeguard & excellent swimmer • Educated: Master of Engineering (M.
