I recently moved to the Seattle area to be closer to family after spending six wonderful years in Chicago. Here is a little bit about my background and experience:
A couple years after completing my undergrad at UW-Madison in 2008, I moved back to my hometown of San Francisco where I worked as a full-time nanny for two years, caring for one child from the age of 6 months to 22 months and another child from the age of 1 to 1.5. During my free time, I provided childcare for six other families all of whom had toddlers between the ages of 2 and 3.5 years. Due to unfortunate work events (unemployment, relocation, etc.), each family could no longer afford to employ me as their nanny, and I made the decision to move to Chicago.
I love to travel and spent a summer teaching English in Crete, Greece to a classroom of 20-30 kindergarten students. It was an amazing experience, and I was able to put my patience, kindness and enthusiasm to good use.
I've worked in different fields (non-profits, start-ups, marketing) but ultimately returned to nannying a couple years ago. I worked full-time for a family in Chicago with two children - one six-year old boy and one two-year old girl - and I had been with them for more than two years. I most recently worked as a weekend nanny every Saturday for a family with three kids (baby, toddler, and school-age child), and I had been with them for a year and a half. Though I no longer work as a full-time nanny, I still keep in touch with many of the families I've met over the years.
I'm responsible, caring, easygoing and reliable, and hope to find a family searching for consistent evening babysitting hours or weekend child care. I have grown close to many of the kids and families I work with and will gladly give references upon request. Thanks for reading and good luck with your search!
