Meet Carissa

Hello! My name is Carissa, I'm 25 years old and a pre-nursing student. I love working with kids and infants of all ages. I work currently as a full-time nanny but I occasionally have weekends and certain days during the week off. More availability soon. I spend most of my time reading or sewing when I'm not working on school. I'm pet friendly as well, I enjoy all animals and have no allergies. I'm more than happy to help with homework or catching up with studies. Also willing to work longer hours if zoom classes are okay in the background. I have my full BLS and CPR certifications as well as a completed CNA certification. I'm fully covid-19 vaccinated as well as completely up to date on all other vaccines, willing to show proof on all counts.

Best babysitter ever! Carissa cared for our 23 month old son during our visit to San Diego and she was phenomenal. She watched him during a wedding we attended, and two additional evenings, and I think she may have been his favorite part of the trip. She knew the area well and took him to a kiddie amusement park near the hotel. She sent us some photos as well, which I appreciated. She really put us at ease with leaving him and provided excellent care. Our son was asking for her when she wasn’t around. Thanks, Carissa, wish we could have brought you back to the east coast with us!
