Jenell’s Bio

I love working with Children. My name is Jenell Lafin and I lived in Texas my whole life until my husband and I moved to Iowa for 5 years while he got his PhD. While in Iowa City I worked for 2 amazing families, one I worked with 2 boys for nearly 4 years until the littlest one went to preschool and the other for 2 girls for about a year until we moved. I very much enjoyed both of these experiences and will miss them deeply. We also welcomed our son into the mix while in Iowa. He is 3 months old. We are now moving back to the Dallas area and I will be looking for part time nanny or babysitting positions.
