Tara’s Bio

Hello! My name is Tara and I have been a nanny for the past 12 years! I started as a freshman in high school with the same family through graduation, and moved on as a full-time nanny after I graduated. I recently moved to Washington from Nevada and am looking for a new family to nanny for. Before moving I was a nanny for the past 5 years for two boys since one was born and the other was 17 months, as well as working as a CNA in a large hospital. I was also nannying an autistic teenager for 3 years while his dad would go out of town on business. I've done lots of volunteering for special needs children and have nannied some as well. I've been a nanny to a 3 year old diabetic, a 1 year old with cerebral palsey and other special needs and two autistic children. I have been working with a nanny agency for the past 7 years. I am honest, reliable, trustworthy, fun, and easy going, but know how to keep control of situations and remain calm. Please contact me if you'd like more info! I have a detailed background check (that is dated) drug test, and am CPR certified! I also have my CNA (certified nursing assistant) license which required finger printing and a background check. If there is anything else you would like to know, please feel free to contact me.
