Hi! Thanks for checking out my profile. I have been babysitting for my neighbors, family and friends since I was 11. I grew up in Farmington Hills and I've been in Lansing since 2011. Community is very important to me. I'm a nurturer at heart and I enjoy getting to know families & helping out. I am enthusiastic to keep learning about effective communication and problem solving with kids (and adults!). I recently graduated from college, and have since been involved with food justice movements, folk music, and other creative projects. I've done a lot of odd jobs such as delivering groceries, tutoring math & chemistry, cooking at a kids camp, farming and more. I am seeking more condensed "gigs". I primarily offer short-term 24 hour nanny care if parents are traveling, help when recovering from surgery, etc. I provide childcare, pet care, housesitting and errands/transportation needs, and I'm willing to travel. Let's chat and see if we may be a good fit! Thanks for reading!

Laura was an incredible addition to our little family when we left the country. It was the first time my wife and I left our kids for that long of time and we couldn't have been happier with her. She cared for our two toddlers and dog for 5 days and we never felt that we needed to check in too much or get worried at all. Her other references spoke so highly of her as well so that made a huge difference for us. She was positive, patient, caring, creative and professional. She created extra activities during the day for them to attend beyond what we suggested. When we got home our kids were in the best of spirits and it was as if we never left. We really loved having Laura as our caretaker and will ask her again in a heartbeat. 10/10 no doubt!!! Thanks!
