Shelby’s Bio

I am CPR and first aid certified and am very reliable and will always be on time or early for you. I have two sons, ages 7 and 3 years old and I love being a mother. I've also been an aunt since I was just 8 years old. I now have 15 nieces and nephews! I have 12 years of paid childcare experience, including two full time long term nanny positions and worked as a teacher's aide at a very popular daycare in Springfield. In high school, I attended Capital Area Career Center and took Early Childhood Education classes and I worked part time for 5 years at Camp Lincoln National Guard in the youth program. I have been a swim instructor and a camp counselor. And I was the head room parent at my son's school last year. I have also worked as a photographer at JCPenney's, Target, and Sears portrait studios.

Taking care of children is something that has always come naturally to me and I enjoy it. I'm family oriented, kind, love making people laugh and being funny, reading, cooking, sports, arts & crafts, and playing games of all kinds. I am also a clean person and will always make sure your child(ren) are safe, happy, clean, and having fun.
