Meet Shipe

  • Comfortable with pets

I have been working as a nanny for nine years (since 2010) & have several families for whom I regularly provide care. I've graduated from Hunter College & received my Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. As a teenager, I wanted to become a lawyer. So immediately after college, I applied to Thomas Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan & was accepted. A year later, I realized that this wouldn't be the right profession for me because years of difficult training, finding steady work and racking up exorbitant amounts of student debt are some of the drawbacks associated with jobs in the field of law. So I packed my things & left Michigan & law school in a place that I could never change: my past. Yet, I knew I needed to make some career decisions that would benefit me in the one place that mattered the most: my future. Read more I decided to return to New York City and when doing so I was seeking employment that was demanding yet rewarding. It was during this time that I applied for my very first nanny position. First let s state the obvious: Babysitters and nannies must love kids & I definitely do. Seeing their faces light up from the littlest things is so satisfying to me because it shows that I am establishing a connection to them. I have a natural way with kids and they always enjoy me as much as I enjoy them. Many times, I find myself having more things in common w/ kids then I do w/ adults. They're smart, honest, affectionate & they help you get out of your own head for a little while.Taking care of another person is a great exercise in reminding yourself that being the center of the universe isn't always the best thing. I currently work full time for a family in Forest Hills whose toddler son is 18 months old. However, I'm looking for additional work (preferably on weekends) because I absolutely love my job and love working with children. My rate is $16-$20 an hour. If you're still interested, please contact me for this position. Thank you
