I'm the oldest child of four and have always helped my mom take care of my younger siblings, whether she was home or not. I started babysitting on my own when I was 12 and continue to babysit for some of the same families, as well as worked three years in the infant and toddler rooms at a daycare. I have had to get CPR and First Aid certified for my past daycare job. When working at the daycare, I worked with 3-4 children, mainly in the infant room, which the babies were 3 months up to walking age. I also worked in the toddler rooms with kids 1-4 years old. My babysitting experience includes children from newborns up to 7-year-olds. I really enjoy working with younger children, especially as this is what I plan on pursuing in my Graduate studies and Professional Career. Im currently in my last semester at Western Michigan University for Speech Language Pathology. When I'm not at school or working, I enjoy baking, playing with my dog, and working out.
