  About Me
I was raised in Burlington. My first job was that of a babysitter working for the same family for over 4 years while attending high school. (The mom was a nurse so I worked early morning and late night shifts, getting children ready for school, preparing meals and tending to the children's needs. whether it be bath time or bedtime stories. ) I have always loved taking care of children (newborn-teens), the nurturing gene is genetic; my mom had eight (8) children.

I have successfully raised 3 daughters, the youngest being 19 and off to college. I am now an "empty nester" and really miss having young children to care for.

This past decade, my 4 sisters and I, shared in the caregiving of our mother (until her passing). We collectively still assist in care for our 92 year old father (who is still quite mobile) who lives full time with my older sister.

As an adult, I worked over 15 years a customer service rep in a financial institution. I have also worked in the healthcare field. For over 10 years I was the owner of a massage clinic which employed 2 full time therapists. I have been self employed the last 7 years working from home and mobile as a Registered Massage Therapist. After 17 years working as a RMT my hands are telling me it is time for a career change.

I am currently looking for live in/out nanny position. I would like to find a long term position with a family that is a good fit. I am a nurturing, honest, loyal and self directed. I have a lot of experience taking care of children from newborn to toddlers to teenagers.

To ensure the smooth running of the household I am willing to run errands such as grocery shopping, dry cleaning, pick up and drop of children to school, swimming lessons, play dates and other activities.

I am a safe driver but also encourage walking whenever possible for the sake of the environment.

  Work Experience & Education Background
10 years experience, 1 references
As a teenager I was "the fun reliable babysitter in the neighborhood. I have always enjoyed taking care of children.

As the mother of 3 grown daughters (youngest is 19) I do miss taking care of children.

Having aging parents, I have gone through the experience of relocating, organizing and cleaning out an entire house. Through this process I realize that I enjoy nurturing, taking care of people, organizing for myself and others and having a clean and tidy home.

I worked for the Royal Bank for 15+ years before going to college to become a Registered Massage Therapist.

I owned a massage clinic for over 10 years. I managed a staff of 2-3 RMT'S. While running my massage clinic I became proficient in management skills, organizing, scheduling staff, laundry++ and working with a wide range of clients/personalities from age 6-92. I continue working from my home and as a mobile RMT.

I am nurturing, honest, loyal, have good communication, time management and organizational skills. I love nurturing and taking care of children.
