"BABY MOZART" I have a truly unique experience that surpasses others. I was a foster mom to drug-exposed newborns and infants, and they thrived. Our daughter is a result of doing. Over the past 9 years, I have been a nanny for infants. I take my position as a nanny to play an integral part in a child's development. I have a degree in music from Duke University, and I take such joy in bringing music, art, reading and all that is inspiring and beautiful to a child's life. BUT, I am also fun, BELIEVE ME!!! So, it would be an honor to be considered.

We wanted to hire Laurie as our full-time nanny and really appreciated the one day she spent with our son. She was prompt, courteous, and very engaging. She's had a wealth of experience with infants and it clearly showed during her time that she spent with our family. The one reference I was able to get in touch with also lavished praise of her work. However, it didn't seem to work out due to family emergencies that arose on her end and unfortunately wasn't communicated until the very last minute (which is the only reason why I deducted one star).
