Ellen’s Bio

I am a seasoned nanny with years of experience. I am currently finishing up my degree in psychology at Drexel and looking for a part time job to start this summer. I love working with children of all ages and have nannied four children from age 4months-preschool age. I maintain excellent relationships with all of the parents and children for whom I have worked, and hope to find a new family to work with for the summer or long term.
