What part of Atlanta do you live in? North Decatur, GA near Emory University.

Where are you from originally? Atlanta, GA – Born and raised.

What language(s) do you speak? English

How long have you been a nanny? I’ve been working with children now for over 15 years, but a nanny for probably about 10 years!

Do you have a favorite age and why? Yes! 3-5 years old because they’re so cute and like little sponges where they are so excited to learn about everything and take it in. I love that they are a little bit more independent at this age so they can engage more in talks, art, and fun activities. I also love that their personalities begin to show more here.

Favorite thing about being a nanny:  Being a part of a family and having mini best friends!

What is your strongest quality as a nanny?  I have a great balance of being fun, but firm. The children see me as their friend, but also as an authority figure that they must respect.

Favorite place to bring children on an outing in Atlanta: Botanical Gardens! It involves exercise, education, nature, play, beauty, imagination, and areas to rest. We can also eat lunch there which is nice!

Favorite activities to do with kids on a rainy day: ART! I love doing art activities with the kids.

What is your educational background? Marketing Degree, Early Childhood Education Certification, Small Business Certification, and Marketing Management Certification

What do you like to do in your free time? Go hiking, spend time with my dogs, create healthy, plant based meals.

What special skills do you bring to a family as their nanny? The biggest blessing that I have been told by several families is that what I bring them the most is PEACE OF MIND! They can freely work or go out and not have to worry about their kids but rather know that they’re in great care and having a great time. Also great communication, creativity, and trustworthiness.

When are you available to start a new position? ASAP!
