Hi! My name is Rachel and I'm a researcher at Berkeley. I grew up and attended college in the Midwest, where I babysat for multiple families for over 10 years. I have experience with a wide range of ages (newborn-16), and I am comfortable caring for up to 4 children at a time. I have 8 years of volunteer experience in the classroom with school-age children, as well as tutoring experience. Your child's safety is my number one priority, so I am both First Aid and CPR trained. I am a fun and creative sitter and love to learn what your child's interests are and follow their lead. I have a calm and easy-going personality; I will always make sure that your child is comfortable while you are away. Caring for children is truly a passion of mine, and I'd love to offer my help in the evenings and on weekends. If it sounds like I might be a good fit for your family, please reach out! I look forward to meeting you and chatting more.
