I am originally from Las Vegas, NV, and have been in the MD area since October 2011.  I am the 2nd oldest child of 6 kids & the oldest daughter, so helping with my younger sisters & brothers was a given.  I enjoyed every bit of it though. I have been babysitting since I was 13 years old. I started babysitting for family friends and neigbors.  In the beginning I was caring for short term time periods then eventually it became nannying for certain families. 
I also worked at YMCA Durango Hills in Las Vegas from May 2000 - June 2001.  I was a temporary camp counselor for summer camp.  The youth & family director extended my employment due to the positive feedback the campers & parents had for me. 
For the past 8 years I was a personal assistant.  I cared for 3 children at a time.  At the time I started the children were 8, 9 & 11 yrs of age.  My duties were to transport children to schools, at times the children went to different schools, so I had to manage time very well.  While the children were in school I did light errands such as pick-up/drop-off dry cleaning, drop-off packages to mail carriers, travel arrangements, laundry, house cleaning.  When the children were out of school, I managed a tight schedule for finsihing any homework assignments or projects.  I also turtored one of the children extensively for about a year. 
I enjoy multiple activities with children - Arts & Crafts, Sports, Reading, Academics, Just to be interactive with children and listen to them is awesome to me!!! 
My rules with any child I care for is, the rules the parents have given.  Each household is different and I respect and adapt to any family I am caring for.
**** I LOVE ANY & ALL DOMESTIC ANIMALS ****
**** I HAVE AN UPDATED RESUME THAT I CAN EMAIL UPON REQUEST****
**** I HAVE IMPECCABLE REFERENCES THAT i CAN EMAIL TOO; INCLUDING THE FAMILY I CURRENTLY NANNY FOR****

Jessica responded very promptly to our advertisement for a new nanny position. We interviewed her, and she was a very impressive candidate. She showed great initiative and follow up, including taking a trial run on the public bus system the day after her interview to confirm there would be no issues with arriving on time for our position. She consistently and thoughtfully followed up on her application as well. Unfortunately, because of my husband's extensive work travel, we moved very slowly in our search and were not able to make a decision prior to the time that Jessica had to make a decision about accepting another position. I was very impressed with her energy, follow through and happy presence. We hope to be able to use Jessica as a sitter for our children for occasional weekend date nights. We were truly impressed with her!
