I haven't been a nanny since 1992 but it was the most rewarding job I had and I loved it! In September of 1987 I left home and moved to Fort Lee NJ to start as a live in nanny in an Orthodox Jewish home. Adena was 5, Eaton was 3 and Ami was 13 mos when I started. I loved those children as if they were my own and the 2 youngest boys often referred to me as their other momma. Their mom Roz, was a MD/Pathologist and dad Leon, was a corporate Lawyer; both working long hours. I learned to keep a Kosher home cooking, cleaning, laundry, shopping and taking care of the children. I took the children to/from school, drs appts, classes, activities, zoos, visiting their Grandparents and their vacation home in the Catskills. I was a complete part of their family and there was a great love, trust, respect and bond between all of us. It broke my heart to leave in June 1992 when I moved back to take care of my 47 yr old Mom who was dying of bone cancer. While taking care of my mom, I also got a job working for Riedell Skates in Red Wing Mn where I held a variety of skate making duties. Mom passed in 1993 and I was laid off from Riedell's in 1996. In November of 1996, I started working for Treasure Island Resort and Casino as a cook moving my way up to 1st Cook/Asst Sous Chef. In August of 1999, I resigned. In September of 1999 I started back at Treasure Island as a Bar/Beverage Supervisor where I stayed until I resigned in August 2013. In April 2013, I was diagnosed with Endometrial Adenocarcinoma, I had a complete hysterectomy in May and underwent chemo/radiation treatments June - December. Since January 2014, I have been cancer free and in the recovery stage, however I do have monthly dr appts. I have some neuropathy and lymphedema in my legs/feet which prevent me from being on them for long periods of time, but I can walk, shop, drive, etc. I live with my 83 yr old Dad and help him with cooking/ cleaning and some driving. I'm currently on disability but looking to get back to work but realize the hospitality field is not an option. I am a plus size, 48 yr old woman who loves children, cooking, entertaining, laughing and I look forward to finding the right family to love and grow with.
1-18-2015, I've become much healthier since I 1st wrote this. I am completely capable of taking care of your children and your home. I really hope you'll consider me and call me for an interview soon! Have a wonderful day!
