Hi! My name is Elisabeth and I’m 19 years old. I’ve completed a medical assisting course and I am in the Army reserve. I’m going to a community college right now to get my associates degree. I’m getting married very soon and will be moving to Santa Cruz, I’d like to have a job secure. I’m responsible and although I have few experience with children, I know I’m fit for the job. I’ve worked for an after school program here in Los Angeles, but it was only for a month before I left for basic training. I’m willing to learn, if you need me to cook I can do it. I’m great at planning activities like arts and crafts, coloring, etc. Hope you’ll consider me, thank you!

I am new to Santa Cruz after recently being displaced from my home in Napa after a recent wildfire. I had just finished up with nannying for a family for one year, and was transitioning into a new job doing holistic health. I have decided to move to Santa Cruz since it aligns perfectly with me and am seeking out a new nannying job for an awesome family.

I have been nannying and babysitting for over 10 years now. My last nannying job was caring for a toddler, starting when she was 6 months old, and finishing when she reached 1.5 years old. Growing up with three younger sisters, and a stepmother who had a daycare, I have always had a love for kids. I have also done a lot of volunteer with children like running summer camps, doing service work trips involving kids overseas, and working with special needs youth. I have cared for up to 5 children at a time, stayed with families when the parents go out of town for days at a time, served as transportation, and more.
