Samantha’s Bio

Hello!
I'm Sam, a 30 yr old experienced childcare provider seeking 20-40 hrs a week
I work as a nanny in a nanny share for several families at the moment that I've been with for years from infancy and hold a special and dedicated bond with, but,sadly they are all leaving me for preschool throughout October. I hold my families dear to me that I've worked with over the 9 years that I've resided in Portland and I'm looking for another independent or nanny share situation with a family/families who reciprocates the love, respect and warmth that I bring as a person who finds the most joy in life connecting with families from pregnancy, birth and beyond.

I graduated from Portland State University years ago with a bachelors degree in Child and Family Studies, taught in preschools, worked in child development centers, and am a trained Birth and Postpartum Doula. I am a progressive minded nanny whom is engaging, energetic, creative, and knowledgeable of child-rearing theories and practices.

If this resonates with you, please contact me and I will email my resume and provide numerous references.

I am so pleased with Sam. I am going to use her every time that I need a babysitter. I have never had a stranger watch my son before and she was awesome!!! I felt so releived as soon as I met her. Shes smart, fun, caring, responsible and very good with kids. My son responded well right away and they played the whole time that we were gone. My house was left in the same condition when we returned. If you are looking for a sitter who is respectful, playful and kind....this is your girl!!

Samantha did a great job taking care of our son. It was the first time we hired a babysitter, but she put him - and us! - at ease right away. We'll be calling her again soon.
