I’ve known I wanted to work with children since I was a kid myself. My first grade teacher was the most wonderful educator and she inspired me to become a teacher, too. Growing up, I was the go-to neighborhood babysitter. As a teen, I volunteered to coach youth basketball teams. Throughout college I worked in a preschool while earning my degree in Elementary Education. My professional career as a nanny has been centered around fostering the growth and development of young children.
