Letter to the family

Hello fellow humans! :-) I am Makenzie, 25 years young and currently living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I have been working as a nanny/ au pair since 2014 when I was an au pair for the first time in Bologna, Italy. Since then I have worked as an au pair in Germany and a nanny in New York as well as North Carolina. I also spent a year abroad in Australia! I would like to be an au pair abroad again as I am very much missing the charm and excitement of Europe as well as the difference in culture and diversity. I am a very outgoing and bubbly person, I will become a part of your family very quickly! I love to cook and I love to keep a tidy house. I have over 7 years of childcare experience and excellent references for every age group. I can't wait to meet you!

Experience

In 2014 I was a live-in au pair for an Italian family with children ages 4, 7 and 12 for 3 months. I took care of the children after school, tidied the house, cooked meals, and did laundry. It was such an amazing first experience that I couldn't wait to do it again!
In 2015 I was an au pair for 1 year in Munich, Germany for children ages 4, 9, and 11. I had similar responsibilities to my first job, and was also responsible for school drop off/pick up, taking children to activities, cooking dinner every night and grocery shopping as well. I had the best year!
When I returned home after my year in Germany, I spent a few months working in my family's restaurant to save up some money. I then went to Australia and lived there for a year from 2017-2018. I was not working as a nanny at this time.
From May 2019 to August 2019 I was a summer nanny for a family with 3 children, ages 1, 3 and 5. I was in charge of breakfast and lunch, nap schedules, fun daily outings and general tidying of the home.
From fall 2019-fall 2020 I worked as a nanny for an American family in Wilmington, NC where I took care of twin 3-year-olds and their big brother who was 10. I did school drop off/pick up, fed them lunch, transportation to activities and cooked dinner for the family 3-4 nights a week. I also was responsible for grocery shopping and light housework such as laundry and dishes.
After 2020 ended I took a break from nannying to try something "more professional". I have worked in a law firm for the last 11 months and my contract is expiring after December 2021. It was a great experience, but I much prefer to spend my time with children.. having fun and helping them to be inspired and loving humans. I would like to begin an au pair position as early as January 2022.
