All through middle school and high school, I helped out a local family by watching their children after school and on the weekends. I was extremely active in 4-H and Girl Scouts. Through these programs, I took several of the young members under my wing, per se, and made sure they were enjoying themselves. In my first two years of college, I was a member of the local Big Brothers Big Sisters Program. My little sister and I were always volunteering our time helping out the younger members of the community.

started as a camp counselor at a horse back riding camp, and became a full time riding instructor to young children. Parents started hiring me to nanny outside of their riding lessons, and I would transport the children to and from the barn and to school and other activities. Currently watching a 2-year-old and a 1-year-old during the day. I'm moving to Chicago in August to start graduate school which is one night a week, so my schedule is very flexible.
