Leigh’s Bio

I am a 26 year old college graduate. I have just received my Bachelors degree in Nursing, and I couldn't be more thrilled. I am taking this time to study for the Washington State Board of Nursing exam. The last step before I start practicing as a licensed nurse. Throughout my education (and life) children have always been the motivating factor to succeed. Ever since working at The Boys& Girls Club, nannying for multiple other families, and finally doing my internship at Children's Hospital, it is clear that child care is my passion. I am CPR and First Aid certified, among many other qualifications. Having the experience to work at Children's Hospital for over five weeks taught me a multitude of skills, specifically pertaining to children, that will undoubtedly benefit my care for whichever family/kiddos come my way.

This review is a little late, because our schedule has been quite hectic. Ihave 3 children, girl (5), and two boys(8 & 9). Leigh was fantastic with them, and one of th most helpful nany's/babysitters I've had, either temporary or permanent.

The kids loved her, yet she was able to get them to do what she wanted ragardless of how difficult things were at the tme. She watched them both in Seattle and at a resort where there was constantly a lot going on. She also helped out over and above by pitching in with whatever needed doing.

Overall, Leigh was responsible, considerate, firm yet warm with the children, full of activity ideas, and basically the perfect nanny/babysitter.
