Hello!   I have always loved being with and caring for children.  I have been nanny or in positions working with infants and children for over 30 years.  I have been a live in, live out, and on-call nanny.  I have over 20 years experience as a postpartum doula.  I am comfortable with all ages of children and have 3 kids of my own - ages 21, 24, and 27.  I also am a pet owner of 2 adorable Shih-Tzus and love animals!  I also volunteer at my church.  I believe that you as a parent know your children best, and I will follow the routines and rules you have for them.  I will also offer them lots of attention, encouragement and positive affirmations.  You won't be disappointed!  (and neither will they!)
