I am currently studying psychology with a view to obtaining my PHD. I would like to specialise in the area of child pyschology.
Prior to this, I worked as an event manager organising large scale fundraising events and have also run my own business in the USA. I graduated from college with a Bacholer of Business in 2002.
I have had 15 years babysitting experience and was a live in nanny for two years in Paris, France in 2004.
I am a very passionate person and have an ability to really understand children. I have lived in Australia, America, France and London. I love cooking, travel, music (I play the piano and latin dance).
I speak conversational French and love French films.
I am a very active person and enjoy on my weekends playing tennis, golf, cyclying, swimming and running. I love the outdoors and especially love to surf and hike in the summer time and ski in the winter time. I love playing games especially board games, bowling, ping pong and pool (which I think I'm great at ;) )
I have had 15 years babysitting experience. Babysitting ages range from 2years -14years old.
I wanted to learn the French language and whilst I was studying French I was a nanny to two beautiful children aged 6 and 8. I was primarily there to teach and tutor them in English and my main duties included driving them to and from school, cooking their dinner, supervising and assisting them with their homework and taking them to their afterschool acitivies and play dates.
"During Nadia's time as a nanny with our family, Nadia displayed excellent communication skills and a great sense of humour, which allowed her to be on the same wavelength as the children. We have found Nadia to be most honest, reliable and trustworthy person. She was dedicated to all her tasks with the children and often gave more than we expected from her. There were times when the children were difficult, yet Nadia worked wonderfully through these phases, she had such a wonderful manner and was very calm and empathetic towards the children. She was very intuitive and had great insight into understanding children and what they go through and are feeling."
"I feel Nadia did an excellent job in developing enduring relationships with my children and us as parents. Marie and Michael were very upset when Nadia left our family to live in the United States. I am delighted to say that Nadia still continues to write/communicate and visit us and just recently spent Christmas with our family in 2010."
"We just returned from holiday in London and thanks to BOKAC, my husband and I were able to enjoy two wonderful adult evenings out while Nadia took excellent care of our toddler daughter. I had complete peace of mind when we left our daughter in Nadia's caring, capable hands. We wouldn't hesitate to book again when we return to London. We are so thankful we found this gem of an agency...simply fantastic!" (Parent visiting London)
