My name is Carlene Tausinga, and I am a babysitter :) I am of Polynesian - decent and come from a strong Mormon family. I am the baby of four, and have always had the greatest pleasure of being an Aunty to so many nieces and nephews. Family has always been a huge part of my life. I started babysitting in high school for members in my Church. From there, I was able to learn how to cook and clean all while looking after the kids and playing with them. As I went on to College, I decided to babysit full time while attending school full time. I recently moved back from Utah, where I attended Brigham Young University- Provo. My first 6 months, I worked with children at the Utah State Development Center. From there, I was able to be CPR certified and to learn different ways on how Read more I can attend and understand children more effectively. After being there for 6 months, I decided to return to babysitting. I babysat for my college friends who had kids and also for church members in my Ward. Babysitting has always brought me so much joy and has taught values that cannot be taught in the classroom.
