I was born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela.
Spanish is my mother tongue and English is my second language. I am also fluent in Portuguese and can understand and speak some French. During my school time I worked as a summer camp welfare assistant, then I became a preschool assistant teacher for two years, until I decided to move to St Barths, where I worked in childcare with visiting families and permanent residents. For the last seven years I have been travelling with three different families during their holidays to help them with their children’s needs. During this time, I have looked after two autistic children and made sure they were happy and well cared for.
Since then, I live in Portugal where I am the CEO of a Day Care-Outdoor Nursery, teaching and taking care of babies and toddlers from 1 to 3 years old. This will be my third winter in Austria working as a nanny so I know the area well. I am an active person and my priority is to ensure all children enjoy their time inside and outside while the parents are busy. I make sure parents feel relaxed and confident that their children are in good hands. I am flexible, listen to the parent’s advice, and try to adapt to every child’s needs and routines to keep everyone happy.
