Some of our Nannies
I am 19 years old and attend Duquesne University as a sophomore Occupational Therapy major and psychology minor. I am from Rochester New York but will be moving to Pittsburgh this summer. In the past, I have done paid work for Wegmans, a cookie business, as a babysitter, a referee, and a car dealership, as well as some one time or side jobs. I am known for being reliable and doing what is expected by the employer. Some of my hobbies include Irish Dancing, soccer, and spending time with friends and family. I have done volunteer/unpaid work for Food Link and at my internship at an elementary school. My internship was in a third grade classroom which was great experience for working with kids and guiding them through activities. Achievements that I am incredibly proud of are attending the World Championships for Irish Dance in Scotland, keeping a 3.5 in college, being a part of an honor society on campus, and upgrading as a referee. My most recent accomplishment with refereeing has been extremely satisfying because of the challenge of overcoming my adversity within the profession. There are very rarely young girls that continue to advance and pursue a path that is male dominated, and I am proud of how hard I have worked to get to where I am!
I am a bubbly, fun, energetic woman with a personality to match. I enjoy being a role model to children and helping them develop into amazing individuals. I love creating things and watching children use their imaginations. Children bring me joy and they are a breath of fresh air.
Not only have I been a nanny, but I have also worked in the legal field as a paralegal for the past 14 years. I have changed career paths as I believe that to have true success you have to be happy with every aspect of your life and that includes your job. A job shouldn't feel like a job.

When I am at home I love spending time with my cats and my dog, Atom.
