Being a mother to my two daughters, aged 14 and 12, has been a remarkable journey. It taught me the art of balancing work and full-time childcare, strengthening my time management, organizational, and multitasking abilities. I aim to bring these same principles into your household to promote a harmonious and healthy environment for your children. Adding a twist to my expertise is my career as a Veterinarian back in my home country Brazil, which has provided me with a deep understanding of animal care. This becomes valuable when handling household pets and teaching children how to interact with them responsibly. I have now been residing in West Vancouver, Canada, since April 2020, and am now a permanent resident of Canada. Personally, I am an outdoors enthusiast who loves hiking, skiing, and walking with my dog, Zoe. I am passionate about cooking, backed by my 2-year experience as a cook at The Beach House Restaurant. On top of those, my availability from Monday to Friday, morning until evening, allows me the flexibility to run errands, do grocery shopping, help with homework, do the family laundry, and maintain a tidy kitchen. I am open to several types of childcare job roles, including nanny, nanny/tutor, nanny/housekeeper, mother's helper, and babysitter. I can start immediately and am open to part-time, live-out engagements. I can comfortably handle newborns to children aged over 10 years and am able to work with four or more kids. I am also able to accommodate children with disabilities and adhere to dietary restrictions. Thank you for considering my application. I look forward to the chance of discussing how my experiences and passion align with your family's needs. Now, don't let this text fool you.
