Laurie’s Bio

Growing up in a large family was never easy, but very rewarding. I would not be the caring, loving, calm, happy, and funny person I am today without their influence. Being the fourth child out of six taught me several lessons. They consisted of, how to be patient, helpful, to appreciate what I have and to give back. I have been very blessed in my life to have parents that have been married for over forty-five years, a close relationship with my siblings, 4 wonderful nieces, 1 sweet nephew and 2 amazing children.
My Child care experience started when I was young with taking care of my siblings, cousins, and neighbors. I always loved being around children. Taking care of and educating them was something I wanted to do for a career. After graduating college with a degree in Early Childhood Education, I decided to nanny for a year while I looked for a teaching job, but that year turned into several years. During my career I have taken care of infants to teenagers. I enjoy being a nanny and feel that I am able to make a positive difference in children's lives.
I am a very reliable, flexible, caring, dependable, trustworthy, and enthusiastic person. I love to do activities with children, such as crafts, cooking, reading, going for walks, playing outside, helping with homework, and going to different places, such as playgrounds and museums. I have devoted my life to working with children and cannot think of a better profession.
