Hello! My name is Alissa. I have 13 years of childcare experience. Ever since I was old enough I have loved taking care of children of all ages. I have been trained in CPR, and the Heimlich maneuver. My childcare experience includes tutoring a child with learning disabilities and infant care. I am patient, creative, I love to cook. I also love animals and have a passion for working with them, I currently volunteer at an animal shelter once a week. I understand how important finding the right babysitter/nanny is. Growing up both of my parents worked full time, and it took our family a while to find the right nanny, but once we did she became a part of our family. I hope to have a similar experience working with a family.
