My mother has always been in the babysitting business. Growing up, I remember being only a couple years older than some of the children I helped my mother watch. Once I got old enough, I began to watch kids on my own while the adults got to be adults. Now I am 18 years old and attend Lindsey Wilson College. I love taking care of children, as I have been doing it my whole life. I have my own car. I can prepare meals for any age. I am CPR/FirstAid certified. I am available after 11am MWF, and 2pm TTR. I speak English, but I have basic Spanish speaking skills since I took courses in high school and last semester at LWC.
