Having always had a passion for childcare I have also worked in preschool settings and various volunteer roles over the last 6 years.

I am very active and love being outdoors, so I am excited to spend time in the mountains and care for children, enabling them to experience all the fun activities that Tignes has to offer and make some great holiday memories.

local village children in Surrey, to UHNW children in London and High-profile children in Cobham,
many of whom I’m still in touch with to this day. My adaptability and open-minded outlook enables
me to create fast and strong connections with both the children and their parents.
As a nanny she would describe herself as adventurous, exciting and loving.  I understand that my presence has a huge effect on those little people around me so
continue to remain bubbly, happy and warm.
