Hello! My name is Helena, and I am a friendly and active 27-year-old looking for nannying and pet sitting opportunities in the Seattle area. I have a genuine love for children, cats, dogs, and birds. I have been babysitting since 16 and have been occasionally nannying since I was 19, mostly with infants and children up to age 6. All of my dog experience is with larger, active breeds. I currently have a feline companion of my very own, and have had parrots since I was 4 years old. I have a science degree, and can assist children with homework in math, science, literature, and writing. My passions include martial arts, hiking, reading, singing (especially English and Irish folk), calligraphy, and medieval reenactment.
