In late December 2018 I started a 6 month contract with the Weidel Family taking care of their hearty premmie. We shared a lot of cuddles, worked on a good eat-sleep-play schedule and helped to maintain mom's breastfeeding and the baby gaining weight. She is now healthy 6 month old who is ready for daycare!

I was previously certified in First Aid and CPR for 4 years in high school - JROTC requirement. I am currently certified in CPR and am pursuing a current certification in First Aid. I was also certified as Nursing Assistant but I let it lapse as I could not cope with nursing home elder care or hospice care. I am well versed in newborn/infant care, sleep training and documenting a little one's habits, needs and daily schedule. I am also on Care.com, there I have a Preferred + Background check and a clean Driving Record!!!
A little about me -
I am originally from Chicago, I am Puerto Rican and Polish. I am 33 yrs old and have been married for 14 yrs. I've lived in DFW for the last 17 yrs, so I am well acclimated to the city, have family all over and can find some of the best activities for kiddos. I love gardening, cuddling my cat and am always in the middle of reading a couple of books. I am an avid reader. I have a library that contains over 1,000 books and would rather read than turn on a TV. Unless it's Sci-Fi, I am a Trekkie, I can quote Dune and love Star Wars! In some ways I am a super geek, I've refurbished my own laptop and do amateur IT work for family and friends. I also like working on cars and in general tinkering, fixing or building something.
Between Nanny gigs I've also been a rigging stage hand, leather apprentice, I've attended Community College and University, been midwifery apprentice, home health aide, waitress and a personal assistant. I love kiddos which is why I always come back to being a nanny despite my career wanderings. I volunteer when able in the community and at my church. I try to keep myself informed and well rounded in my interests. I strive to always be learning something.
I would love the opportunity to share all that I have to offer with your family!
