About me

Hello,

My name is Staci, I was born and raised in St. Louis, now living in Queens. My childcare journey began in 2001, at the Illinois Center for Autism with ages 3-21. Since moving to NYC in 2006, I have held positions as Nanny, Governess & Household Manager, and have experience with ages 1-15.

Childcare is a passion I take my commitments seriously. It is imperative that I find chemistry with the entire family, and I appreciate working for employers that require a take charge assistant.

I adore children and it shows in my big sister approach to childcare – As a warm, easy going nanny, I take time to get to know each child and slowly earn their trust while giving mine.

My top priority is to ensure safety, discipline and individual growth, while remaining firm when needed,

Engaging children in arts/crafts, messy projects, cooking and baking are just a few of the fun activities I plan. I am pro-active in scheduling play dates and setting up any appointments

After school, I supervise the homework and keep children on task. After homework they are taught to organize for the following day. Teaching children responsibility is paramount to be a productive adult and I'm always willing to lend a helping hand.

Cooking is also a passion of mine and I’m able to accommodate requests and any special dietary needs.

As personal assistant, I am happy to help with anything you cannot get to yourself – taking on tasks such as bill paying, submitting pet insurance claims, keeping stock of essentials and specially requested items. Furthermore, I have experience in hiring contractors and over-seeing any maintenance. In the past, I have utilized apps to stay organized & on top of tasks, such as WunderList, which makes it easy to share to do lists with employers. As a career nanny, I believe open communication and mutual respect of boundaries are keys to a successful working relationship. Also, a sense of humor along the way, of course!

My schedule is flexible and I welcome extra hours. I am open to travel both domestically & internationally with advanced notice. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.


Very best,

Staci

I will be SmartSitting while...

I love soccer and I'm a huge Real Madrid fan, so you can catch me watching the games. I also enjoy photography and am always out shooting beautiful scenery somewhere. I enjoy traveling and enjoy going off the grid for weekends. My family and friends are super important to me, so I travel home to St. Louis when I can. I have a beautiful tuxedo cat, Musha, who I adore and love to spend time with. Cooking is also a passion and I often put on dinner parties at my home. Wandering aimlessly in the city and finding new interesting things in the city has always and will always be on the top of my list! As a music lover, I often attend live performances.

In 5 years, I hope to be...

with a lovely family, still standing strong in my career in family assistance! I hope to also hone in on my photography skills.

Activities & skills I love to teach & share with children...

Cooking and baking! It's so fun and kids tend to learn the responsibilities of cleaning up as you go. I also love to teach photography to a curious child, it can be very relaxing! Also, art is a huge part of my life and I very much enjoy sharing creative moments with children.
