Sheila’s Bio

I have well over 16 years of professional Nanny/House Managing/Personal Assistant experience. I have also taught Pre-School and Pre-School swimming. I have In-Home Day Care experience at my Westchester residence. I have a Child Development/Psychology background. I have an extensive medical background, CPR trained and can handle children with special needs.
Kids respond to me because I am patient, outgoing, fun-loving and try to relate to them at their level. I also try to make every day a fun learning experience.
I am not afraid to get my hands dirty. In the summer you can find me on the ground teaching the kids about insects, how to fish, or catching bullfrogs/ turtles to study (catch and release). I am a big nature-lover. I can still even impress childrens (and myself) by turning a cart-wheel or two. I am an avid fisher-woman, excellent swimmer and horseback-rider.
My hobby is training/entering my German Shepherd Dogs in Obedience/Conformation Competition). My current 4 year old female Lexxi, is a UKC Champion with ove 45 ribbons/awards. She is VP & SG rated in the German Show ring, holds 2 Obedience Titles, and visits several Nursing Homes, as she is working on her Therapy Dog certification...
Although I am no "spring chicken" so to speak, do not let my age deter you. I am high energy and fit, working 50-60 hours a week caring for children. On the weekends if I am not working, you will find me running around the dog show ring, or practicing agility!
I have a Law Enforcement and Medical background and have also worked in the Corporate world. All of those jobs I really enjoyed. But I am completely happy and comfortable in a private/domestic setting taking care of children and managing a household. I excel at ensuring that the household is running smoothly, and I like putting my excellent organizational skills to work. It is a very gratifying experience for me. I have also learned that to be successful, there needs to be teamwork on the part of the parents/caregiver, open communication & consistency. I also believe that there should be organization and structure...
 I am also very intelligent, professional, comical, considerate of others, a bit of a neat freak and a little bit of a workaholic. I am 100% dependable! I am also a parent, although my daughter is in her late 20's.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you. 
Sheila

Shelia helped for a few weeks recently. My children took to her immediately. She was very creative when it came to arts and crafts projects with my 3 1/2 year old. She was very engaging with my 19 mos old twin girls - helping them learn abc's, number, colors and promoting independent play. She was respectful of my rules with the girls and my house was always very tidy and clean.
