I have been a nanny for over 10 years helping care for families with multiple children of all ages. For almost ten years I cared for a family with four boys! St. John shoutout-Miss you guys! I have a RN degree and I am CPR and first aid certified, infant to adult. I love engaging children in conversation and reading books. I love the outdoors; playing, sports, parks, yoga, hiking, biking, walking...all kinds of adventure! I have my own car, 2017 Nissan Leaf, and I am happy to help with transportation. Arts and crafts are my jam! I've been know to bring art supplies to nanny gigs so make room on the fridge. I can cook meals and will clean up after myself. Additional cleaning and cooking can be arranged. Also, a huge animal lover. Please also see sections for house/pet sitting services in addition to cleaning and meal prep.

I am a graduate of an accredited nursing program where I was a peer tutor and made the Dean’s List with honors. I obtained both an LPN and RN degree and worked in the Emergency Department of Berkshire Medical Center as a new grad where I became a ENA member. From there I was hired as a charge nurse of an extended care/rehab facility. After which I worked in home health in Berkshire County. I was a Project Health Scholarship recipient. I was also president of the LPN club and president of the student nurse organization (SNO). I now use my degree for health maintenance and helping people with med reconciliation. Often after a stressful hospitalization a patient is sent home with new medications and sometimes specialists are not in the best communication. Call me after a hospitalization or change in medication to help create the most accurate list possible of all medications a patient is taking — including drug name, dosage, frequency, and route. I am also avaibale for wound care and can be a strong patient advocate.
