Abigail’s Bio

Hi, my name is Abigail Gallop, I am a past-time photographer in Charles Town, WV. I have chosen to continue on as a nanny in the early years of my photography, because it keeps me busy and brings me joy and challenge. I never want to become too lazy or inactive amidst the slow beginnings of my photography career and kids are great at keeping me active! Children are such a joy in my life, and I like to keep my days full of joy!

EDUCATION:
I was homeschooled through my elementary and high school years with 6 of my siblings. I now have 7 nieces and nephews who I get the fun of watching on a weekly basis. Children have been a huge part of my life and I am thankful for how they have built up my character in the past by teaching me patience, joy and how to be gracious.

During my junior and senior years of high school, I was enrolled in dual-credit courses at Houghton College and then later I studied at Blue Ridge Community and Technical College. My courses included English Composition, Advanced Mathematics, Finance, Chemistry, and Language studies.

EXPERIENCE AND INTERESTS:
I recently returned from a six month job commitment in San Jose, Costa Rica as head photographer and communications officer for a local organization, but before that I was a full-time nanny to 4 children here in Charles Town. I have also worked as a part-time babysitter for 5 years and as a cleaner and maintainer of homes for elderly women during the past 4 years. I would be very willing to do any housework required!

As far as hobbies go, I love to cook, read, take pictures, and spend time outdoors, and would find it my pleasure to enjoy these hobbies with your kids, as well as encouraging them in their own interests.
