Lisa G. - Seeking Work in Chanute

22.85 / hour

From June-Dec 2009 I worked as a live in nanny for a family in New Hampshire. They had 2 children ages 4 and 18 months. I lived with them and took care of the kids Monday-Friday 8-5, and loved every minute of it! So I'm happy to say that I've got even more experience now! I would also be happy to give you their information as a reference if you'd like, just let me know! I have been babysitting since I was 12 and was a nanny to a little girl a few summers ago as well, but unfortunately had to leave the family because of school. I have lots of experience babysitting for families ranging in sizes from 2 to 6 so I'm very comfortable with any number or age of kids. I also have a sister who is 10 years younger than me. Of course I've babysat her more times than I can count, but I never really thought of it that way. We would always just be "hanging out" playing games or watching movies. Babysitting has never been a job to me because I love doing it, and I've never felt like it was a chore. I just love kids and know that I can be a positive influence in their lives.
