April’s Bio

I am an easy-going person who enjoys the simple things in life. I pride myself on my being very dependable, honest, mature, and I get great satisfaction out of helping others.  I adore spending time with children and have 19+ years of experience caring for toddlers and infants.
I am a 33 year old mother of 2 small furry dogs. Casper and Smokey are the love of my life. I plan on having several children, however my past military lifestyle and college was put first so I can provide for my family. I am currently taking a few online courses to finish my nursing degree.
I have been around children my whole life so it comes very natural to me. All of my friends children call me Aunt April because I spoil and treat them as if they were my own. I am always looking for new, fun and creative ways to entertain children and pass the information down to my family and friends! I am currently learning sign language for infants, as I have experienced some amazing progress with children learning some basic signs and signals!
I was a babysitter since a wee little kid and was actually a full and part time nanny for families in Nebraska, Florida for several years. I am brand new to the Dallas area! It was a joy to watch the babies grow and bond with you!
I am definitely a hands-on personality type and love to play with the children, engage in activities, sports, crafts, take for walks outside, help with homework or anything they prefer to help stimulate their minds as opposed to just sitting them in front of the tv all day. I also keep a "Nanny Journal" to document all of the activities performed that day to include all feedings, bottles, diapers, Rx administered, household cleaning, pet-care, or any other special notes to parents about anything important!
I used to volunteer frequently at my old church in Nebraska (for 3 years) in the childcare room so I could watch the newborn babies.
I have worked at an animal hospital in the past and became very experienced in many aspects of the veterinary field and can administer vaccinations, bathe, partially groom (depending on breed) give subQ fluids, give shots and other special needs.
I am Red Cross certified in BOTH human AND pet first aid and CPR!! I know people cannot believe their is a class for dogs, but I am serious in knowing everything I can to save my "children's" life!

April is absolutely amazing! She has been watching our daughter for a few months now and is very accommodating with our schedule. She also is great with our pets, and since we have four dogs that is a BIG plus for us. She really goes above and beyond with caring for our daughter and give us the piece of mind to be able to leave our daughter in her capable hands and we don't have to worry about a thing while we are away.
