My name is Kristi, I am 51 yrs old, and I have been a professional nanny for over 31 years. I do not do this as a step to another career…this is the path that I have chosen to continue for as long as I can! THIS “IS” MY CAREER. I love children with all my heart, and genuinely feel that I have a special connection with all ages. As well as this being my profession…I am also the mother of a 14 year old daughter. She is the light of my life! She has allowed me to see ALL aspects of both, raising a child, AND being a parent. I have learned more about challenges that may arise with children, and creative ways of dealing with those.  I have cared for children from Newborn – 15 years old, and have also been a nanny for twins. The majority of Read more the nanny positions that I have held, involved caring for newborns and toddlers. I consider myself to be a very compassionate, creative, nurturing and loving person! I am patient and calm in all situations, and use Redirection, communication, and Time Out as my forms of discipline. I can honestly say that I have rarely had to use time out which I can contribute this to having the ability to keep children entertained and busy with the things they love to do. I am open to following any guidelines that have already been set by the parents. I believe in a good amount of structure for a child, so am capable of planning activities and fun things to do. I am very creative and crafty…so I go much further than just coloring when it comes to crafts. You will often see homemade decorations for every holiday of the year, cardboard houses/castles/rocket ships, painted ceramics, outside spray bottle paintings, funny homemade puppets, and the list goes on and on. I believe that Imagination is the key to play and creativity! I love to teach and do it in creative fun ways.

Kristi is an outstanding caregiver! She's extremely loving and patient. Not only was she fantastic with my kids, she's also tidy, helpful, detailed and thorough. She is a joy to be around. I was lucky to have found her and I would highly recommend her.
