My name is Lauren Gilbertsen, and I am an undergraduate at the University of Florida. I have a major in Animal Sciences, and a minor in African Studies. I've been working at Publix for 3 years, and continue to work there. However, I am looking for a more flexible job.

I have extensive experience babysitting, and I love kids. My mother is an elementary school teacher, so I know a couple things about tutoring, as well. I am a huge Disney-buff, especially when it comes to Star Wars and Marvel, so movie nights are one of my favorite things to do. Of course, animals are also a pleasure to care for, considering I have 2 dogs and 2 cats at home.
