I am a mother of 4, boys ages 9 and 7 and boy/girl twins age 10 months. I am perfectly comfortable around animals and I am a professional juggler of household duties (cooking, cleaning, interacting with the kids, taking the dogs out to do their business, laundry, etc.) I am a warm and receptive person. I have a strong personality while not being overbearing. I have 15 years of experience in professional child care as a Front Line Youth Worker with kids in the care if CAS as well as 3 previous nanny positions some many years ago that were all successful and that I very much enjoyed. I am currently working in a home that is a 6 bed facility for highly aggressive/high needs children and am looking for something a little less intense in terms of aggression etc. as I would like to have some more energy for my own kids when I get home. I am extremely dedicated and take care of others children as if they were my own while respecting family boundaries and culture.
