I have been nannying since I was about 15 years old. I started off with 2 girls, and babysat during the summer full time, driving them to summer school, making them lunch and dinner and of course entertaining them! I then babysat 2 different girls while I was in college....picking them up for school and helping them with their homework, preparing snacks for them. Most recently I babysat for a 1 year old full time, but they moved so i am looking for a new job! I graduated from college last May. I am 23 years old and very energetic and love kids! I am very responsible and friendly and always up for anything. I have 2 dogs, so pets would not be a problem. I also have my own car.
