Crissy D. - Seeking Work in Owosso

17.14 / hour
Full-time hours

I have always loved children and when I was 9 I started helping a lady from church with her 3yr old daughter as basically a mothers helper. Then at 11 I started babysitting. My best friend in highschool had a child and I moved in with her and helped care for her infant son. When I was 17 I started caring for a family of three (4yrs old, 11 and 12) and was there for 2.5 years. I really loved those kids. At 19 I dated a single father and took care of his 3 children (5,6 and 13). I moved in with my best friend in college's family at 24 and helped care for her 2yr old son and then her newborn. Since then I babysit casually, help my sisters with their children, help coach childrens Jiu Jitsu classes and really just love spending time with children and helping to care for them.
