Hello parents and caregivers! I'm Diedra and have lived in the beautiful Golden Isles of Georgia all my life. I am a creative, compassionate, and highly dependable Nanny who has more than 25 years of experience caring for children from newborn to early teenage years, as well as managing an active calendar of appointments. I am an outgoing mother of 4 young adult children (2 boys and 2 girls), including a set of twins. I pride myself on being a flexible caregiver who can handle unexpected changes in schedules or situations with ease, grace, and confidence. I have a background in  Medical Billing and Coding, and I'm effective at creating new activities, multitasking, organizing, and managing time. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, spending time with family, and traveling. Overall, I have a passion for helping others.

Hello parents and caregivers! I'm Erica, a native of Brunswick, Georgia. I am a compassionate, loving, go-with-the-flow woman who adores children. I have two children of my own, ages 18 and 17. I have over 13 years of experience in babysitting, nannying, elder sitting, and pet sitting. For the last 6 years, I have had the pleasure of working as a nanny for this outstanding family on Sea Island. I love meeting new faces in my spare time while working with many other great families! I enjoy bringing my love of exercise, the outdoors, healthy foods, and exploration to children. I think every child has such great potential, and I thoroughly enjoy getting to know every child as an individual and meeting their needs accordingly. I have traveled to different countries and the many U.S. states gained an appreciation for other cultures, and am confident with challenging situations.
