Kenya’s Bio

I have always loved children. I have been caring for children since high school and intensely enjoy being around them. I am very personable and children have always seemed to be drawn to me.  I am very hands on, I will get down on the floor and play games, pretend, color, etc! I can communicate with them in a way that makes them comfortable and willing to follow my rules as far as getting their homework done, behaving, and whatever their parents would like to be done while they are away. I have been a nanny for many families throughout the years, caring for many ages and quantities, four at a time being the most so far. I have also baby-sat many school age children during high school. My patience, optimism, energy, and loving discipline have helped me be successful in caring for children of all ages.  I have always been a very positive and cheerful person. I am a former cheerleader and cheer leading coach for my former high school, so I am full of energy and very active physically. I have the ability to establish a repor with anyone I come in contact with, whether child or adult making it very easy to get along with everyone.
I am also a very creative person. I have published four books. I have three years of college experience where I majored in biology and history. I have tutored children in history, English, science and health. I have taught English overseas in South Korea at a camp for 3rd -6th graders and it was a wonderful experience. I speak conversational Spanish and have a passion for cooking healthy, flavorful food of many different styles. I love dogs of all sizes, I have a cocker spaniel of my own and have experience with parrots as well.

Kenya was great, my regular nanny was out for the week, and she stayed with my daughter. My daughter doesn't normally warm up to strangers, but she really liked Kenya!
