Where to start.. I belong to a family of 6 children, me being the oldest. With me being the oldest I was designated as the "built in babysitter". I started babysitting children outside of my family when I was 13. I also worked at the daycare in my high school for 2 years. My youngest sibling is 3, resulting in 3 years of infant care. I have also cared for an autistic child and provided a fellow, autistic school mate with tutoring.

I love taking care of little ones! I have watched children from newborn up to 10 years old. I would prefer watching children under the age of 5 years old. I also have worked in our Junior Church (ages 3-12) for the last 15 years. I currently have a dog, two cats, and a coop full of chickens! I am not CPR/First aid certified yet, but would be willing to get it done.
