Adriene L. - Seeking Work in Carthage

22.85 / hour
Full-time hours

I have been babysitting for over 10 years. I came from a family of 9 kids. I am right in the middle, so I have had plenty of experience with older and younger siblings. I grew up babysitting other children from newborns to teenagers, I have 13 nieces and nephews. I have always loved kids and definitely want to have my own someday. My family has had all kinds of pets growing up so I'm used to being around animals. I have had an abundance of time taking care of twins as I have twin nephews and also used to watch 9 kids and they had 2 sets of twins. I had a background check done within the last 2 years, but I definitely don't care if someone wants to pay to do another one! I'm CPR certified and I have a safe, reliable SUV that I drive.
