7 yrs of experience

Hi! My name is Juliet, and I am a very experienced caregiver. I am currently a junior at Grand Rapids Community College, and I study nursing. In my past work experience I have worked as an HHA at an assisted living & memory care center where I took care of those who couldn't care for themselves. My experience in caring for children is babysitting my younger brother and also multiple families in my town ever since I was 12 years old. Most recently I nannied for a family through Care.com Summer ‘16 and ‘17. I currently work part-time for a home health care company and I travel to my patients homes to care for them, but I am looking for another job opportunity. The children I have babysat have ranged in ages 2-12 years old, but I have also cared for many individuals from a variety of older ages while working at an assisted living center and for the home care company. If you feel that I would be a perfect caregiver for your family, please feel free to contact me! My availability is ideally Mon-Thurs or Mon-Fri.
