About Me

I am a happy, bubbly person, patient and easy-going, reliable, honest, organised, involved, open to new and self-sufficient.
I absolutely adore working with babies and they seem to like me too, probably because I am a warm person. My work does not feel as work but rather as a personal life style.
I am a hard working person as I really like to make a difference in peoples' lives and I love being around to help and excel in whatever I do.
Somehow it has worked for me to be always surrounded by children of different ages as I started out as a teacher with teenagers and continued as a nanny with under 3s and then moved on to becoming a Maternity Nurse and during this process I rediscovered myself and learnt about myself.
I am passionate about my work and I am always finding ways of improving myself and my services.
From my teaching days I have learnt how to share my ideas and plans and I am a big believer that parents need to make informed decisions; from my nanny days I have learnt how important it is a routine (a more flexible one or a slightly stricter one - but a routine) and how babies love knowing what to expect from their carers and what is expected from them and from my maternity days I have learnt that babies are amazing little humans with unlimited potential that just need lots of love and proper care to thrive and develop nicely.
Since I started working as a Maternity Nurse I started learning more about breastfeeding and how important it is for mother and baby. But when my mummies have decided not to breastfeed I never pushed them towards breastfeeding as I have found their family's pressure was huge and they just needed a companion to help them through a difficult period of their life.
I am happy to say I am friends with most of my families and I am trying to see them as often as I can and be part of their lives if they wish me to be there along the way.
