My family and I used to be a foster family in which we care for 9 children in the course of 6 years. We had ages anywhere from newborn to 13. My previous job was at a daycare in the 1-3 year old room and i worked there for about a year so i know that age very well. I was a constant babysitter for family friends and neighbors. My first babysitting job was when i was 9 years old for a neighbor while they worked from home.

I am currently in college at Metro State, and I plan to be a pediatrician when I am through with school. My major is Chemistry as I complete my Bachelors, from my Associates in Psychology. I love children and plan to have my own someday. I am the oldest of three so I have had experience baby-sitting from an early age. I also was a tutor in school and was an advanced honor student. I have had many early teaching opportunities with young children. I have baby-sat often in the past for friends, relatives and parents I have met through this website and others for most of my life. I have lived all over the north metro area and I am able to baby-sit all over the metro area as I do have my own car. I am good with animals as well, as I have many of my own. I spend most of my time with toddlers. I have numerous great families I sit for although I have one family (with a 1-year-old and a 3-year-old) I cared for part-time every weekday morning, Monday through Friday until recently. My experience is extensive over the past eight years or so. I could literally go on forever describing the great kids I have sat for in the past. I believe I can be beneficial to any family and I look forward to meeting yours.
