I currently hold a full-time (day) job at a small marketing firm in the city but am looking to find a fulfilling way to spend some of my nights and weekends by caring for young people. Having recently relocated to the city, I am looking to expand my client base a bit as it is becoming increasingly difficult to schedule with my “usual” families back home in the suburbs.
I have over 13 years of babysitting experience for all different kinds of families – from neighborhood children to family members as well as ‘friends of friends’ or ‘friends of family’ – and have cared for 1 to as many as 5 children (plus animals; I am a dog lover!) at once. Ideally, I would be most comfortable with watching anywhere from 1 to 3 kids but am flexible and patient enough to handle more when needed.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my friends and family as well as my dog, Rupert. Prior to adopting him a few months ago I was volunteering a few hours a week at a local animal shelter, but now that Rupert is in the picture I try to spend more time training him at home. Other than that, I have been playing the double bass (the “big cello”) for nearly 15 years now – and I cannot imagine my life without music. I do not have a group that I consistently play with, but do receive several opportunities a year to play with local groups, mainly orchestras.
Looking forward to meeting you soon!
