Hello, I'm Catherine! I am 21 years old and am currently a junior at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign pursuing a degree in English. Prior to English I was an Early Childhood Education major and really enjoyed my classes and learning more about the development of children, but I realized I didn't want to teach, thus my switch. I have been babysitting for about nine years, since I got my certification in CPR, and I have loved every second of it! I have loads of experience with younger children, from 0 to 8, but have also babysat older children too. I have nannied for a family for the past four summers, and while it is hard work, it is so rewarding. I am skilled at caring for sick children and love creating new activities to play as well as getting outside of the house and going on fun adventures!! I love to read, write, and doing anything outside on a beautiful day! During these unprecedented times, I would love to provide any help or support I can.
