Joan’s Bio

Hello, my name is Joan de la Pena, but please call me JD. I have been a live-in nanny for 23+ years. I have had 7 families in my career. I have cared for newborns up to a 12 years old.
I was with my last family for 3 years. I am now looking for a full-time live-in position starting in August or September. I would like a long-term commitment to a family in the Boston/Metro area.
I am a college graduate (Accounting) and am a good driver. I enjoy taking care of kids of all ages, playing, reading, crafting, exploring and just having a grand old time together. I am organized and very familiar with Boston's childrens play spaces/museums. I have a strong personality and work ethic, take direction well and am highly flexible when schedules change.
Thanks for taking the time to read my profile and considering me as a new member of your family, JD
