Hi! My name is Laura and I am a 3rd year graduate student at the University of Connecticut with a Bachelor's degrees in Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences and in Psychology. I am now attending the University of Connecticut, again, as a Doctor of Audiology student. I have been a babysitter since age 12. I have cared for families as large as 5 children, males and females. I have worked with newborns, school-aged children and children with disabilities. I was also a live-in nanny in Italy, where I cared for 2 young children for a few months. I possess skills applicable to babysitting such as good time management, communication, and interpersonal skills. I am very comfortable around pets; my dad is a vet, so I've always been surrounded by animals! I also have worked for many years as a CPR/AED and First Aid certified lifeguard and swim team coach, but now only hold first aid and CPR/AED certifications to date. I will have access to my own transportation and would be comfortable driving children to any nearby activities. Due to my current academic schedule, I am looking for a regularly scheduled opportunity starting in mid January. I can also babysit overnights if needed.
Beginning July 2016 I will be working 8am-4 p.m. in Wethersfield M-F for my residency year, so nights and weekends are ideal.
