  About Me
Hello: My name is Kelly. First of all I am very interested in meeting you and talking about this nanny position that you are looking to fill. I was a nanny at a young age 22 yrs old. I worked for a family in Hillsborough, CA (bay area-San Francisco) I am still very close to them to this day. I am now 52 years old (almost) I was always the sought after childcare provider all through my high school years. I paid for my braces by babysitting. I am the 9th child of 10 children. I know how to share and get along very well with others. I was nanny for several years.. then I got married and had 2 children of my own. They are now grown and successful. One in Italy and the other in Los Angeles. I have in the meantime worked as a professional singer. Even winning Nationals in Nashville 5 times for Female vocalist. My husband and I owned a restaurant and small club that had live music in San Diego (I am a San Diego, CA native) I went to Grossmont High School and Grossmont College. We moved to WA state (because my parents did-we wanted to be close to take care of them) within 4 months of being here in WA my mother died suddenly of a stroke. I needed to work so I become a licensed Insurance Specialist. I did that for 6 years. Even an Underwriter for the Farm & Ranch Division. Much too boring for me. My Ex husband is a retired iron worker. He loves WA and I do not. I miss the ocean so much. I miss the people and I do not like being cold for 7 months a year. I have been soul searching where I want to live and what makes me happy. I want to go back home to San Diego. I want to be a nanny as that made me the happiest. To be with children from babies to High Schoolers. I love being part of the family and pulling things together so that everyone has a successful day. That things are done to make the day smooth for all involved. I have a lot of energy ( I am not hyper-or crazy annoying) I can stay the course and I am loyal. You are my priority. The family comes first. I am just a few credits from a Criminal Justice degree.. so I understand about keeping kids safe. I do not have the need to finish my degree. I will not be returning to school. so no conflict there. I am young for my age. I like to be in shape-I am working on that as we speak. Sitting all day in the insurance job.. put a little around the middle. working that off... I play co-ed softball still. I have a trainer and I work out. I go on walks. I cook. I shop for groceries.. errands.. hang out when needed to. and or whenever you want me to. I can take kids anywhere you need me to. Be there for comfort and support. I am not the gal waiting to run out at the end of the day. I am there for YOUR family. I am the one you trust for your family and home and your things. I can help with party set ups. I was the Director of the California Country Music Association therefore, I know how to set up and create events big and small. I can manage your household. I am a great employee and friend. As much as you want. I don't get into your personal life. You come to me that is one thing. I will never ask. Not my place, not my business. Your home. and children are my business. I think you would love having me around. I am happy and hope you want a happy nanny. I can be serious when the need calls for it. I am not a jokester. I take my job and your family seriously always. I am the opposite of lazy. Bless you and I hope to hear from you. I can leave WA in a moments notice. Nothing holding me back. Nothing at all.
