Meet Sarah

I have been babysitting since I was 12 years old, and have taken a few positions as a live-out nanny before. I have also watched over as many as six children at a time and cared for mentally handicapped children. I like working with children because I grew up in a large family, and taking care of my siblings came naturally to me. I believe having that experience gave me a heart for children and a desire to work with them.

I've had my fair share of pets and done plenty of pet sitting as well, and am comfortable with pretty much anything except snakes.

I completed a CNA course (certified nursing assistant) in Maryland and was licensed but had difficulty transferring it to Virginia, I am in the process of getting certified in Virginia as well.

I also trained as an opera singer and have had a little success in that field. I am a great lover of music and dance and have had a wonderful time getting kids up and dancing on rainy days. When the weather is nice; however, I'm a big believer in getting outside and in the sun as much as possible.

Anne B. says:
I have known Sarah for about 18 mos now. She has been a caregiver and driver for my son during this period. I will tell you that you won't find a more reliable care provider. I work shift work (early mornings, weekends ) and Sarah was there no matter how early or how bad the weather was. If she could help out- when my son got ill at school- she was there to pick him up and provide care until I got home. I... More

Elizabeth T. says:
Sarah came to our family through Care.com. I was returning to work after four years spent home with our children (ages 5, 4) and was ambivalent about leaving my children in the care of another. Sarah proved to be fabulous. Within the first week of work, my children were thrilled and thriving to the point that they enthusiastically looked forward to Sarah's daily arrival. For the year that Sarah worked for... More
