Courtney R. - Seeking Work in Nantucket

22.85 / hour

Experienced babysitter looking for a position from July 6 to August 1. I am a rising sophomore at the University of Southern California, studying Pre-Medicine. I absolutely adore children and have come to Nantucket every summer since I was born (my family is from Baltimore, MD). I will not be here for June because I will be in Thailand working at a hospital doing rotations in Pediatrics. I have a home on Nantucket but can either be live-in or live-out depending on your preference! I love the beach, soccer, swimming (pool and ocean), cheerleading, lacrosse, and arts and crafts. I am currently finishing my certification to become an EMT, and will have it by this summer. Needless to say I am CPR and First Aid Certified. I know the island well and have been babysitting many families on island for 6 years now. I look forward to meeting your family and cant wait to hear from you!

I started babysitting when I was 13 years old and have continued since. Last summer I was a nanny for a 7 and 8-year-old and I would also babysit for a 9 years old and 2 year old whenever I got the chance, usually on my time off. Currently I regularly babysit for a family in my neighborhood with a 4 year old daughter. The youngest I babysat for was a 7 month year old so I am comfortable with young children. Aside from this I am 18 years old and from Albany New York. I am finishing up my senior year and will be starting college in the fall. In my free time I do volunteer work which involves teaching children tennis lessons and I work as a lifeguard as well as teach swim lessons to beginner swimmers. My hours are flexible and I don't mind early mornings or late nights.
