Allie K. - Seeking Work in Sarasota

22.85 / hour

I am a girl with a very strong passion for children and I wish to someday have children of my own. I have worked with children for many years as a babysitter and would love more than anything to be able to be a nanny for a loving family in need. I worked with children for 2 years teaching gymnastics, ranging from ages 2 to 15. I have also been babysitting for 5 years now for families with ages ranging from 1 to 13. I would love to be a nanny much more than a babysitter because I feel nannies have a much stronger bond with not only the children but families as well.
