Gabby H. - Seeking Work in Buellton

22.85 / hour
Full-time hours

I have always enjoyed working with children. My earliest experience was helping my teacher in 3rd and 4th grade with the children with special needs. I have been babysitting since the age of 12. I still baby sit occasionally for some of those families today. After basbysitting through most of high school I found a part time nannying job in Goleta. I loved working there and still keep in touch with the family. I left because I needed more hours. I found another nannying job in Santa Barbara where I worked until recently.
