I am an energetic, easy-going, creative nanny who is willing to relocate for my next position. I was born and raised in Texas, the daughter of a minister/counselor and salesman. I grew up going to my uncle’s church and that is where I got my start working with children. I have always been a fan of the arts, both visual and performance - I also enjoy cooking, sewing, swimming, reading, writing and the great outdoors. I am flexible and able to go with the flow as well as follow organized plans. I have worked with many special needs children over the years, mainly focusing on ASD/Aspergers and ADD/ADHD. I have also worked with infants, multiples, blended families and families with several children. It’s hard to think of a combination of children that I haven’t worked with.
Roxanne 's childcare philosophy:
My time with your children will be interesting, engaging, imaginative, and challenging; I’m not the kind of nanny to just sit them in front tv for hours on end. I use the Parenting with Love and Logic discipline style because it empowers the child to make their on decisions in a safe environment so that they may grow up knowing how weigh the consequences and make good decisions on their own as an adult. I love to take children out to explore the world and learn new things whether it be at the park on a nature hike or at a museum.

As early as age 8 I was helping out in the church nursery as often as I could, and if ever my parents didn't where I was that was the first place they looked. My Friends and family know that if there is a baby around I'll probably be holding it. One of the hardest thing that I had to learn over the years caring for infants was that some times babies cry, even when nothing is wrong and all you can do is make sure every thing is OK and do your best to sooth them. Seeing all the milestones more than make up for all the teething tears, the smiles and laughs and all the first make the dirty diapers worth it.
