About Me

Dear Parent or Carer,

Thank you very much for taking the time to read my profile and considering me as a Nanny for your children. I have recently completed my third year Norland College but am taking some time away from the college and am therefore looking for a job.
I was born in Scotland but I was raised in Brussels, Belgium from the age of 7. Living in Brussels enriched me in many ways; I have had the opportunity to be completely immersed in French and Dutch resulting in a perfect fluency. Living in a foreign country has equally taught me to be open to different ways of living and doing things. Thanks to the multiculturalism of Brussels, I have been able to have many fruitful experiences with children.

I began looking after children on my own at age 15 when I began babysitting in order to raise money for my first philanthropic adventure to Kenya in 2012, where I worked in several schools in Kibera slum. I continued babysitting for children of varying ages from new-borns to pre-teens. Since moving to Bath, I have completed several placements in local nurseries and schools. Since joining Norland, I have had the opportunity to work with many different families, doing regular babysitting as well as nannying. My experiences have been varied, I have worked with children from as young as two days old up until 16 and have also worked with multiples and children with special educational needs. I am an extremely hard working and committed person. I currently work for three private families regularly including one family in London. I am hoping to move into the field of rota nannying, having experienced 24/10 whilst working for my previous employers in London.

Due to the number of hours that I currently spend working and developing my professional practice, I don’t have a large number of hobbies. One of my regular activities is going to the gym, I am very interested in fitness and nutrition which compliments one of my biggest passions in life which is food. I am a very confident and competent chef and I enjoy cooking for children and adults alike. I enjoy making food from different countries and cultures and encourage all of the children in my care to be adventurous eaters as well. My taste for exotic food has been developed over many years, as I have been extremely lucky to travel across the world with my family and experience many different cultures and cuisines . Despite my busy lifestyle, I am a family girl at heart. My family has always been tight-knit despite being spread across the globe and I believe that family is central to my approach when working with children. I enjoy spending time observing families in order to understand how I can best fit in and support their individual needs. I really look forward to meeting you and your family.
Yours sincerely,
