Ashlee B. - Seeking Work in Baton Rougee

17.14 / hour
Full-time hours

I was THE main care taker for all 4 of my younger sisters since I was 9 years old. Our mother was very ill for many years, so I was naturally next in line. I was born to be a caretaker and I love nothing more. I have babysat dozens of children in my life. Family and friends always looked to me because they knew I could handle it. In high school, I was a full time summer nanny. I have been a nanny for a few different families in the area for the past 10 years, all of whom grew out of their nanny needs for different reasons. Besides being a nanny and babysitter, I volunteered in our church nursery for many years, I volunteered at Summer Bible School (and later taught my own classes) and I taught Sunday school for a few years. I am more than capable of handling all 3 children at once. Afterall, my youngest 3 sisters are all 17 months apart. The youngest is 10, by the way. I have a roomy crossover SUV. I am an excellent cook. I don't mind doing laundry and dishes and cleaning up after the kids. I have really good judgement and handle emergencies (real and not so real) very well. I place high value on education and development.
