I began babysitting in tandem with my sister when I was 13 years old. We continued working together until I was 16 and we began to work on our own because of the sheer volume of job requests we were receiving. While I was in college I babysat my professors' children, babysat while I was home during my breaks, and spent 6 weeks in Maryland as a live-in nanny for my Mother's college roommate. Now that I have graduate college I am looking for a full-time position.
