I am a mature 28-year-old woman born, raised and still living in West Bloomfield, with a lot of experience. I have been babysitting for about 10 years now and enjoy being around children. My specialty is watching twins and infants. I have babysat/nanny for many different families with kids from the ages of 2 months old up until teenage years. I'm also a manicurist and try to do a little babysitting and a little manicuring. I'm available everyday except for Thursday's for now. I'm a very fun, honest, reliable woman who would never take on someone elses responsibility unless I was going to be just as responsible as the parents and take care of the kids as if they are my little brother or sister. I don't have the heart for anything less than that. One thing I don't like to take responsibility for is taking the chance of driving with kids in the car. I just don't feel comfortable doing so. If you are interested, then I hope you'll be okay with that. Contact me if interested or have any questions. Thanks.

I began working with children when I was 11 in the church nursery and made connections to begin babysitting from there, working for many families until their children became too old to need a sitter. When I graduated high school, I began working as a full-time nanny. I have worked for three different families long term ranging in ages from newborns to teenagers. My current family has two children and their youngest will be attending Kindergarten in the fall. I've been watching him since he was two.

I am a recent alumni of the University of Michigan and will be moving home for the summer. My schedule for the summer is extremely flexible, thus I will be able to work full time Monday through Friday. I have been a camp counselor for 4 summers and have been a date night babysitter throughout the school year. During my first summer at camp I worked with 7-9 year olds, and during my second summer I worked with 13 year olds, thus I am qualified in working with children of varying ages. I enjoy spending a lot of time outdoors in the summer and being extremely active. I will be moving home on the first of June and will be in West Bloomfield for the entire summer. I have a dog that I am obsessed with, thus not only do I love animals but I am qualified to take care of them. My mother is a school teacher, therefore I grew up appreciating the value of a good book and reading outdoors in the summer. If you have any further questions please feel free to reach out to me!
