Hello future family! My name is Megan and I have been a professional Nanny for over 10 years with experience with children from newborn - teens. I've obtained a diploma in Advanced Nanny Studies, and a certification in Basic Nanny Skills through INA and currently enrolled in Early Childhood Education bachelors program. English is my first language but I also know American Sign Language and the kids enjoy learning a hands on second language. Reading is a favorite hobby of mine, you can usually find me at the local library or bookstore. Depending on the ages of the children I love doing arts and crafts, baking, watching a classic Disney movie. I am looking for several families who need someone for date nights, overnights, vacations, occasional care or even back up care

Megan watched our son Alexander during the month of April while we attended a wedding in Las Vegas. She was prompt, did a great job entertaining our son, and provided us updates on how things were going.

Megan has watched our 1 and 2 year old on several occasions and has done an outstanding job. She is a natural at teaching and communicating, using sign language as a great tool to interact and teach. We are very pleased with her work and will definitely continue to call on her when we need a sitter.

Megan came over to watch our 10 year old daughter and 6 week old son. She was excellent! She was on time and even got along with our dogs. Our daughter couldn’t stop talking about the things they did. Megan even taught our daughter a few things in sign language. Our son was changed for bed and well cared for when we came home. Our daughter asked the next morning when she would be coming back. -Jon and Enjoli

I was very pleased with Megan when she babysat my 3 year old & 2 month old children. She asked a lot of great questions, so she would be able to do things the way we are used to. She seemed to have a genuine interest in my children, and was able to relate and communicate very well. I would definitely use her again and thought she displayed initiative, confidence, & knowledge which makes her great at what she does.
