I m a college student who grew up in a big family and loves kids. I m currently living in Grayslake, IL but in the fall I ll be going to school near my parents in Rantoul, IL. I would be willing to move early for the right fit. I started working at the age of 11 at an in-home daycare helping out. It turned into a job and I worked there til I graduated from High School. When I went away to college I lost myself in the process. I came home regrouped and got a job doing what I love. For the next 5 years I exclusively working as a Nanny. I can provide a resume upon request; it wouldn't let me post it here. In January of 2015, I got my Property and Casualty Insurance producers license and I have been working for Allstate for the last 1. 5 years. I decided to go back to school and Allstate doesn't fit in that plan. I love being outdoors, arts and craft, reading, taking adventures and learning new things through the eyes of a child.
