Part-Time To Full-Time Caregiver Or Housekeeper
Hi there! My name is Tristina! A little about me: I am 24 years old, a non smoker, have 7 semesters of college education under my belt, 5 years of cooking experience in a healthcare setting, which has given me the know-how to cook for a variety of complicated diets and for those with allergies and 13 years of childcare experience. My mother owned a daycare in our home from the time I was 4 until I graduated from high school, and from day one. I assisted her with the children, changing diapers, feeding, cooking for, and educating on everything from basic motor functions, to reading and telling time. I also worked between 25-50 hours per week from ages 10-17 babysitting on the side for dozens of families. Though I am not currently CPR Certified, I was certified for 16 years in a row, and am willing to obtain a new license if desired.
I love working with children of all ages, especially infants and toddlers. It is fascinating to see how small children develop, and very rewarding being a part of that development. I have been a part of many children's first steps, first words, and first successfully tied shoes, and feel like a very fortunate person for the experience.
In my 7 years of babysitting experience in other peoples homes, I not only provided excellent child care, but also excellent housekeeping. I would make sure to leave the house cleaner than I found it, because I know raising children is difficult, and not everyone has time to maintain a clean house while chasing around any number of children. I am a big fan of doing dishes, folding laundry, and cleaning counter tops. I also love organizing rooms in desperate need of organizing, if for any reason than to make the family run more efficiently.
