We spend all day laughing together and reading each other’s innermost thoughts, but I realized I don’t even know that much about a lot of you. Let’s change that:
Current Job: Professional Nanny. I’ve been doing this for about 8 years and absolutely love it. I spend my days with the sweetest three year old identical twin boys and their adorable ten month old little sister.
Dream Job: Writer. As in, someone actually paying me to write rather that my little memoir essays going into a file called “writing” and occasionally coming out to play at editing workshops. I think it would be pretty amazing to write a memoir style book on my experiences as a nanny along with a narrative on the nanny/family dynamic. My boss and I frequently joke about chapter titles but it’s on my bucket list to make it a reality.
Hometown: Saint Louis, Missouri
Current City: Saint Louis, Missouri… But I’ve been quite a few places in between including Delaware, OH (college); Columbus, OH; Darien, CT; (back to) Columbus, OH; Lake Forest, IL; then back south down 55 and here I am again.
If I could live anywhere in the world, I’d move to… Denver.
Interests: running, a great bottle of wine, a not so great bottle of wine shared with friends and lots of laughter, hiking, my sweet pit bull/black lab pup Charlie, family, traveling anywhere and everywhere, discovering hidden STL spots, patios of every variety, writing, and my boyfriend.
