Brooke C. - Seeking Work in Allegany

11.54 / hour

Hello! My name is Brooke and I am 16 years old. I live in Olean, New York. I have been taking care of children since I was one myself. My mother was always working to support us so I had to mature very quickly. I've taken care of children of all ages and I'm very good with caring for children with disabilities. My own little brother had the also love caring for animals. I have helped train puppies that have belonged to my friends. I even volunteered for months at a facility because I had heard rumors of them not being properly taken care of. I am very dependable, patient, and I'm available usually anytime after school. I also cook and clean. If you have any questions, please feel free to message me. :)
