Marcy’s Bio

I am a professional nanny though I took a break to care for my aging parents who, are now both deceased. I have always babysat since the age of 10 and even worked in a pre-school in college. I am compassionate, smart, fun, healthy, active and very understanding and flexible. I have a great network of friends and family. I am single and available to give 100% to my next position. I would love to find a family seeing a mature and responsible nanny to work long term with their family. I LOVE children of all ages though I would love to put my experience with newborns to use.

Personally, I am most proud of my accomplishments as a single mother. My daughter graduated from U of I and after working in the "real world" for a few years is currently working on her graduate degree in Social Work. (I had her at 23 so I am still very youthful!) I am fun Aunt and great Aunt to 17 nieces and nephews. Of the families I have sat for, two have had children with special needs. One boy has Down Syndrome and in another family of three, one boy had ADHD. Funny story: I was the nanny for a family many years ago (1990-1994). Recently we came full circle when I helped out for 6 weeks with newborn twin boys when one of those children I had nannied for became a dad himself! Their original hire walked out on the first day so they texted me with a cry for help! It was so rewarding. I am extremely patient as you may have guessed. I speak proper English, use manners, I'm consistent, reliable and very fun! I would prefer a long-term full-time position with benefits but I would consider all options as I am open minded.
I drive a safe reliable car and have a clean driving record. I'm a strong swimmer. I love music, dance, arts & crafts and can play dinosaurs as well as princess on any given day. I'm comfortable with basic homework help. Great with pets. Non-smoker/non-drinker. No criminal record. Great local references. I'm from Chicago, though I had lived in the suburbs for many years, I am now back in the city.
