Caitlin C. - Seeking Work in La Crescenta

11.99 / hour

I worked for a family in Venice, CA, for almost a year. They offered me a position with them in Atlanta when they moved, but I had already committed to working in California. I had been a live-in nanny for their family on weekend and occasionally for a week at a time when the parents traveled or when I joined the family on trips to Atlanta to nanny for them. My duties have ranged from taking the child to different activities, picking him up from school, taking him to appointments, and also doing light housework, running errands, picking up groceries, and other mother's helper tasks. I have babysat for many families since I was about 12. During my college summer break I volunteered as a camp counselor for a group of junior high girls, and worked part-time during college at an elementary school as an after school mentor. In addition, I volunteered with inner city neighborhood kids in LA for four years. Also I have had the opportunity to volunteer as a soccer coach for a city team and at church sports camps.
