I am a mother of one and grandmother of two and have worked as a professional nanny for 20+ years after working as a legal assistant. I am originally from Washington State and have lived in both Rhode Island and Connecticut, respectively, since '98. I enjoy children so much more than administrative work, hence I turned to childcare. I have had many long-term commitments, newborns on-up, twins, in the mix; I am blessed to still see the former families and stay in touch with those out-of-state. (Although I am "seasoned," I encourage prospective families to view me as bringing a grandmotherly-presence to children - still able-bodied, yet mature and nurturing, with no personal commitments to conflict with a family's needs; during this unique time, I have diligently practiced all precautions and social-distancing which will provide an added comfort-level; I am fully vaccinated.) I am CPR/First Aid/AED certified (a given,) have Read more a squeaky-clean DMV/BCI check, a non-smoker. Infant care: bottle-feedings, solid foods - all down pat... I have a passion for the arts - Broadway show tunes, children love them! I focus on age-appropriate activities and I am well-versed in children's literature; I am a Play-Doh goddess, good for the little ones; kicking a ball around, taking long walks. I am an avid animal-lover and am more than happy to attend to pet care needs. I am open to any questions you may have and references are readily available.

JoAnn was our nanny for 2.5 years. She was a very loving and nurturing caregiver to my twin boys from infancy through the toddler years. She was extremely reliable, and completely committed to us. My boys love her, but we have moved on to preschool. I encourage you to meet JoAnn for yourself.
