Hi there! I've been caring for children since I was in my mid-teens myself in a variety of roles. As a babysitter for all of high school, I worked a flexible schedule with several families in my home town. I've nanny-ed for two families in the past. One had 2 children, ages 4 and 8, I primarily did after-school care and occasional weekend or date night extended hours. I was responsible for some meals, transportation, and homework help. My second family had one 4-year-old daughter. I lived-in with their family for the summer in Hailey, ID. I was the child's primary care giver during the week and would plan a variety of activities around town. I taught my 'little sister' how to swim, provided art lessons and transportation, made healthy meals daily and did basic housework. In addition to these roles in the home, I was also a camp counselor at Summer Fenn Day Camp for two summers. This praised program honed my skills as a care-taker of a child's well-being outside of the home. I learned about the best ways of teaching a child about appropriate behavior and how to do so in a fun, engaging, and child-friendly way. I worked with children of a range of personality types and interests from ages 4 to 8.

I have been babysitting since I have been 16 years old. I have been caring for twin boys since they were born 4-1/2 years ago. I have a BS degree in Psychology & I am certified in both CPR & First Aid. Although I majored in Psychology in college, I have taken several Early Childhood Education classes as well. I have lots of experience in my field & love helping people of all ages, but my passion lies within caring for babies & children. I love all kinds of outdoor activities, arts and crafts, music, reading, dancing, singing, anything & everything that is fun and/or educational. I can clean, prepare formula/meals, run errands, do laundry, pick-up/drop off, potty train, give baths, dispense basic medication, assist with homework, et cetera. I am a non-smoker with a valid drivers license and a reliable vehicle. My vehicle is a 4 door and comfortably fits 3 car seats in the back seats. I am honest, reliable, trustworthy, organized, fun, outgoing, patient, and excellent at multi-tasking. I am a very energetic individual & children are always highly entertained by my silly & fun personality. I am in my 40's but I am active & definitely young at heart. Along with my age comes wisdom and patience. I feel that both are very important traits when taking care of children. I would love for you to consider me in caring for your children.
