Hello, my name is Kaitlyn and I'm from Lima, Ohio. I am currently attending The University of Alabama and my major is Human Development. I started babysitting at the age of 10 and also started a kids camp when I was in the sixth grade up until my sophomore year of high school. Families I have babysat for usually had me pick their children up from school, either take them to their after school activities or stay at home with them until they returned home from work. I have been on vacations with some families and I have also watched their children while they went out of town for the night. I have babysat children from the ages of 4 months to 13 years old. My hobbies include soccer, dance. I am responsible and dependable, but also fun and energetic!

I am currently involved in children's ministry and nursery at a Church. I have worked in children's ministry there for the past two years. I was a Nanny for a family of 6 (ages ranging from infant to 11yrs) in the summer of 2014. I regularly babysat and went on vacations to nanny for that family the past two summers as well. In 2010, I started as a nanny to a family of four (two boys: a newborn and a two year old) and worked for that family the summers throughout high school. In addition to my experience as a nanny, I have done occasional babysitting for a large part of my life. I have several years of childcare experience with children of all ages from newborn to teen. Also, I am Safe Sitter Certified.

I started off babysitting when i was around 9 years old for my baby sister. Both of my parents were busy on weekends with work, during that time i cared for my newborn sister. I have always been taking care of her when another adult isn't around. I began to nanny alone when i was 11 years old, for a few neighbors down the street after school. Since then my name has been passed from family to family, giving me the chance to care for their children along with light house keeping duties!! I enjoy all the families i have nannied for, i have nannied for about five families each ranging from 6 months to a year, 4 times a week. Sadly, they have al relocated due to their husbands job.

Over the past ten years I have experienced a numerous amount of babysitting and nanny jobs. I have always had an unexplainable love for children and babysitting is something I cherish in my life. I graduated from the University of Alabama in May of 2013 with a degree in Elementary Education. I received a kindergarten teaching position in August of 2013 and am currently in my fifth year of teaching. I thoroughly enjoy teaching, but I am looking to get out of Tuscaloosa and nanny for a year before returning to teach.
