Nanny/Future Pediatrician Seeking Fun Family to Babysit For!
I started babysitting when I was 10 years old. I have experience with newborns who need full care - to teenagers who only need rides to activities and homework supervision - to everything in between!
Throughout high school, I was a babysitter on nights and weekends for a family of 3 kids, who I have watched since the oldest was a newborn. They are now 12, 10, and 9.
During college, I worked as a nanny for a 5-year-old only child and did occasional date nights for a family of 3 kids, ages 5, 7, and 9. I also spent a year working as a nanny full-time for a family with 4 kids, ages 6 months, 2, 5, and 7. I have also worked as a preschool teacher and children's acting teacher.
I like to consider myself a Mary Poppins type nanny/babysitter! I will not just set your kids in front of the television, but I will play with them and encourage activities. I love arts and crafts, games, songs, sports, outdoor activities, trips to the park, OMSI, Zoo, Children's Museum, etc.
I love working with children and plan on being a pediatrician. I graduated from Saint Mary's College of California with a B. A. in English Literature, summa cum laude, with honors in the major and was a candidate for valedictorian. I currently take post-bach classes at Portland State University part-time. I spent time traveling and living abroad in both Ireland and Costa Rica. I am a Certified Nurse Assistant and have my CPR/First Aid certification as well. I speak Spanish semi-fluently and have worked as a tutor as well in English, Reading/Writing, Spanish, Social Studies, Algebra, and Science. I am also a volunteer at a hospital in the post-surgery unit.
I currently work at a doctor's office part-time, am working on medical school applications, and play on a soccer team.
