My name is Lauren and I moved to Seattle from Chicago in 2011. I lived in Chicago for about 4 and a half years and graduated from Loyola University Chicago as a biology major and music minor. I love Seattle and try to take advantage of all its opportunities. Currently I am taking time off to study for the GRE so I can enroll in graduate school next fall and then visit family for the holidays. I love children and babysat often in junior high and high school. I had the opportunity to nanny last summer for a wonderful family in the Seattle area. I wanted a flexible job and childcare is both fun and rewarding. I am a very organized person who has always been goal-oriented, yet laid back. I am also very outgoing and have always gotten along with different types of people. I have babysat for both boys and girls, ages 1 month to 12 years. As far as babysitting philosophies, I feel that games, crafts, interaction, and play are the most important.
