Night Nanny - Postpartum
"Helping to support new families, get much-needed, rest, and support in the early days and months of parenthood." Long time Nanny | Multiples | RIE

For as long as I can remember, my heart has been drawn to the magic of pregnant people, babies, and young children. Looking at pictures of my younger self, you'll see me admiring babies and mothers with pure fascination. My ultimate life goal was to become a mom, and eventually, a teacher too, and I consider myself incredibly fortunate to have achieved both of these dreams.

Caring for children and supporting families has been a central part of my life's journey from an early age. I started babysitting in my early adolescence, and as I grew older, I naturally transitioned into becoming a dedicated nanny. Growing up in a single-parent household, I quickly learned self-sufficiency and the value of being reliable and dependable.

With over 30 years of experience as a career nanny, I've had the joy of caring for families with single children, multiple siblings, and even many sets of twins—aside from raising my own twins, which has been an amazing and fulfilling journey.

I also hold a Bachelor's degree in General Psychology, and my passion for child development is deeply ingrained. I firmly believe that the foundation of any relationship should be built on trust and reliability. This principle holds true right from the very beginning of life, starting from the precious moments of a newborn's arrival, and continuing throughout a person's entire journey.

Working with families, I strive to uphold these values and create a safe and nurturing environment for children to thrive in. Each family I support becomes an extension of my own, and I pour my heart and soul into making a positive impact on their lives.

When I have some free time, you can often find me in the company of my adorable dog and beloved daughter. They bring immense joy to my life, and I cherish every moment we spend together, creating lasting memories as we explore the world around us.

My passion for caring for children, my dedication to fostering trusting relationships, and my genuine love for what I do are the driving forces behind my journey as a nanny and a mother. I find immeasurable fulfillment in watching children grow, learn, and thrive, and I am grateful every day for the opportunity to be a part of these incredible family stories.
