I was a Girl Scout camp counselor for 4 years and it was the best way to really learn to take care of kids. During that time, I worked with girls ages 6 to 13 years old, leading arts and crafts, cooking, games, sports and singing. I learned a lot about entertaining kids then and I learned to make up games from what's around me. I have had a lot of experience as a babysitter and nanny for children from newborns to teens who are 15 years old. I also worked as a lifeguard for the 2012 summer and I am trained in CPR and water rescue. I grew up in a big family and started taking care of my cousins when I was in elementary school.
I also volunteer at a few children's charities like the Ronald McDonald House Charity and Feed My Starving Children.

Elissa was an amazing babysitter for my two daughters. Every time I would come home, my daughters had a craft completed and learned new songs and fun games. My daughters asked for her any time I had to get a sitter. Elissa was very flexible and understanding. any time I had to cancel or change times. I highly recommend her.
