I started babysitting neighborhood kids and family friends' kids when I was 11 years old. During high school, I volunteered in my high school's low income preschool program and tutored with World Vision. During college, I volunteered in an organization providing creative writing help to kids in their free after-school program which prepared them for their read out-loud performance they gave at the end of each quarter, in front of teachers and family.
After college, I was lucky to be connected with a family friend who needed a part-time nanny. From September 2008-September 2011, I was a part-time nanny throughout the week and an on-call nanny to multiple other families which worked perfectly with my freelance schedule. Since 2014 I have been part-time nannying, and pet/house-sitting.
