I have over 8 years of nanny experience, and have worked closely with children for over 10.
I believe in the importance advocating a healthy lifestyle; encouraging healthy whole-foods/plant-based eating habits, outdoor activities, and learning through hands on experiences in nature. I am on the board at Out To Pasture Farm Sanctuary, and am a huge animal lover. I aim to connect children with animals, and am working on several projects involving programs that strive to do just that. I have illustrated coloring books, and am in the process of illustrating a children's book to be launched this coming summer.
Being a nanny has been an incredibly rewarding experience. I've became a part of people's families, gotten to watch children grow, and have gotten the opportunity to work in a creative, natural environment. I take my position very seriously and strive to be a positive role model first and foremost. I believe in being attentive to children rather than setting them in front of technology. I genuinely enjoy working with children, and prefer to engage and connect by means of books, art, music, nature, and careful communication.

Lainie worked for us for more than a year, and would have been with us forever if it was up to me! She is conscientious and reliable, as well as fun and active...my daughter just adored her. She was always creative in coming up with activities to engage my daughter, which isn't always easy in our cold weather climate. My daughter is on the autism spectrum, and Lainie had great instincts with her. She worked with the consultant that runs a home therapy program for us and quickly picked up the programs and strategies that we have in place for her. She was a beloved caregiver and like family to us!
If I could give 10 stars I would. Lainie was our nanny for about a year and the only reason she's not still our nanny is due to a move out of state. My children absolutely adore her and we truly consider her a part of our family now. My youngest was 1 when she started and he would not go to ANYONE outside of family. It took her less than 20 minutes to get him to warm up to her and he's loved her every since. She has a special gift with children that I noticed from the beginning. My son would run to the door with open arms each day when she arrived. She's extremely responsible, fun, creative, and dependable. I have 4 children and she handled everything like a pro. She kept me up to date on the events of the day letting me know of funny things the kids said, games they played, etc. Even though I couldn't be there with them I still felt very much apart of things. I hope the family that gets to have her as their nanny knows how lucky they are. They don't get better than Lainie!
