Experienced childcare provider and avid volunteer looking for babysitting jobs after 5:30 p.m. weekdays and some weekends. I am a young professional working at Massachusetts General Hospital in genitourinary cancer research and gearing up to apply to dental school for the Fall 2017 cycle. I have recently graduated from the University of Massachusetts Amherst with a bachelor of science in Neuroscience/ psychology and on the Pre-Dental track. While in school, I was a member of a sorority where I held the position of Corresponding as well as Ritual/Song chair. During my time at Umass and presently, I have volunteered for Horizons for Homeless children as a Play-space Activity Leader (PAL) in Amherst and now in Cambridge. To be cleared to volunteer for Horizons for Homeless Children, I had to have a CORI background check. I have 2 and a half years experience volunteering for Horizons where I conduct 2 hour weekly play/babysitting sessions for groups of children age 6 months- 8 years. These play sessions can get hectic with such a wide age range and sometimes an unbalanced ratio of volunteers to children. This has well prepared me for preventing potentially hazardous situations and has tested and perfected my mediation skills. I know and understand the critical social and motor skills your child needs to learn in each age group and have adapted a schema for age-appropriate play that will keep your little one interested while learning. I love children of all ages and am eager to meet yours to play and to make your week a little easier- I am also CPR certified!
