Heather’s Bio

My name is Heather and I am both a responsible and educated 25 year old female. I just moved to Massachusetts from Florida! I have worked the past 5 years as a Nanny to multiple families. Basically I would take over Mom/Dads role and do whatever I saw fit to make sure the household ran smoothly! That included laundry, walking and feeding pets, caring for children, dishes, cooking, etc. Anything you can think of, even grocery shopping. I love to engage the children with fun activities both inside and outside the home. We would go to parks, bike ride, and even learn good manners along the way. I have a very nurturing and gentle way with children, but also a very fun and energetic attitude! I'm always looking for and coming up with new and fun activities, that we can do together. I am subscribed to newsletters, which have constant suggestions for great summer fun activities!
For the little ones, I am a big fan of Baby Einstein and going to the library for Toddler and Me time!
The most recent family I worked for had 5 beautiful daughters, ranging in age from 3 to 13. I did rounds of school pick ups (3 different schools!) and gymnastics, dance, theatre runs after that. We learned to bake and set the table. It was wonderful. I have cared for all ages, infants to teens.
I love helping families function at their best and would love to find a family that welcomes me and is open to long-term help! I typically work from a planner and am very organized. To me this is not "work", it's making a difference in the life or lives of those around me. I love acting as a role model and a teacher for children. I do tend to spoil those I work for and go out of my way to make times spent together special and enriching. If you would like references, I can absolutely provide those, as well as anything else you might want or need. If I seem like I could be a good fit, please feel free to call, text, or email me, at your convenience! I have a 2011 Camry in great shape and don't mind short notice or odd hours, I'm used to it! I currently am looking for a full time position, but am flexible! Expect lots of hands on help and regular updates throughout the day, usually via text! Any questions feel free to ask. Thanks!

Great!

I want to make sure Heather gets all the recognition she deserves: we were travelling to Boston from abroad, with a rather uncertain schedule (we, the parents, had to attend an event over several days), and Heather was SUPER-flexible. She stayed with the kids at our hotel, came with us to the venue of the event, and was always available to accomodate our requests.
On top of that, our kids really loved her!
(almost one month later, I found a small paper plane in my boy's room: what is this? "This is for when Heather comes and sees us, daddy!")
We all wish her all the best, and definitely endorse and recommend her as much as we can.
