I am 19 years old, I have 2 years college experience but I now permanently work as a Vet Tech at a horse hospital in Somis! My shifts at the hospital are 12AM-8AM so I am looking for daytime work. I am very kind, responsible, and nurturing. I love kids, I enjoy spending time and playing with them. I have a lot of experience babysitting children ranging from 6 months old to 12 years old. I have many references if you'd like to contact them. I have a car and can pick up from school, take to extra curricular activities, etc. I love to help with homework, play games, go on walks, anything your child likes! I am also great with animals so I am able to care for pets as well. I am a very clean person, your house will always be clean when you come home! I am very reliable and safe and I have a flexible schedule. I would love to come by anytime and meet you and your little one to see if we are a good fit!
