For three years in college, I worked as a volunteer leader with Young Life (a ministry for high school kids) at Conestoga High School. I have also worked on and off since high school with a great company called Comfort Keepers. With Comfort Keepers, I worked as a caretaker for elderly people who needed extra help in their homes. I also, of course, have done lots of babysitting and nannying starting in high school and all throughout college in and around the mainline area. I have cared for all sorts of kids of all different ages and I can still truly say that babysitting/nannying is one of the best jobs in the world. Most recently this past year, I was lucky enough to be the nanny of two curious, energetic little boys, ages 4 and just over 1 year.
I am energetic, friendly and patient and I don't take the opportunity to care for and spend time with children for granted. There really is so much wisdom in the mind of a child and there is so much joy in getting to know kids and seeing them learn and grow!
