I was a stay at home mother who prides herself on doing things the old fashioned way. I enjoy cooking, gardening, hiking, traveling and pursuing a simple life. I thoroughly enjoy sharing my love of the outdoors and creativity with the children in my care and believe that laughter, play, discovery and stability are crucial to a healthy and productive childhood. For 6 years, I worked in the public school system in kindergarten, severe disability and preschool class settings, which has been an invaluable experience and further enhanced my skills to develop and educate young minds with patience and understanding. Those skills I developed along with over 10 years experience caring for children of all ages, have proven to be an asset to the many families I have had the pleasure of helping I am currently working as a nanny and am available in the early mornings (6-11am) or evenings Read more (6pm-12am). Please reach out to me if you're looking for a dependable, caring, responsive and enthusiastic sitter for your children. I am CPR and first aid certified and have a clear background and driving record.
