Joanie’s Bio

I am an energetic 55 year old woman. I have my B.A. in Elementary Education. In 2014, I returned from Kenya, East Africa where I spent 7 years working with children. I was an educator and I volunteered with children and babies of all ages that lived in an orphanage.

I have a plethora of references from families I have worked with that would be glad to share with you my excellent qualifications. I have cared for infants, toddlers, primary age and teenage children so I am the nanny for you! I also have experience with multiples as young as 8 months old. I have had personal clients for as long as 10 years, which has allowed me to see their children grow from infants to school age students!

I am the Children's Coordinator at my church and teach Sunday School regularly. I enjoy getting to know children to discover their likes/dislikes and tailor games and activities accordingly. We can play outside, do arts and crafts, sing, make up stories - the possibilities are endless! I am not big on electronics while spending time with your children.

My CPR/First Aid certification is current. I have my own car and a spotless driving record. I would love to come and meet with your family to see if I would be a good match. I look forward to hearing from you.

PS: I LOVE animals too!

We are very pleased to have Joanie helping us out after school. My 3 year old daughter enjoys her very much, and she has been completely reliable, easy to contact, and cheerful.

Joanie has been taking care of my 4 month old son on a full time basis for the past month and she is absolutely wonderful. She is reliable, energetic, and trustworthy. She is an excellent communicator and always updates me on her day with my son. She takes him for walks in the stroller; she reads and sings to him. She is flexible and works with my schedule. She truly cares about the wellbeing of my son. I can’t say enough good things about Joanie- we are so lucky to have her.
