I come from a very large extended family and have been babysitting for years! I recently graduated from Florida Atlantic University with my Bachelors degree in Elementary Education, and have my Florida Teaching Credential. Before I moved to California I was babysitting an 18-month-old, as well as an 9, 8, and 6-year-old part time. I did my internship for my degree in a Kindergarten class, so I have plenty of experience with little ones. I have a passion to teach and take care of children, and would love the opportunity to look after yours!

I have worked exclusively for two families. One family had 2 girls 2 years apart. I have been caring for them since the youngest one was about 9 months old and the older child was 2. They are now about to be 3 and 5. For this family, I have done everything from just day time care to overnight care and have even gone out with them to theme parks or other outings where they needed extra help. For the other family, I took care of their daughter from the age of 8 to 10 during the summer. I also now work at a pre-school during the school year as part of my work study job at school. The ages are 2 to 5. I also care for my nieces and my goddaughter very often.
