Meet Gemma

  • Comfortable with pets

Hi, my name is Gemma! I’ve been taking care of little ones for nine years now. I worked as a full time nanny last summer, and loved it! I also worked at a day care during the summers throughout high school. I’ve worked for four families for many years as a babysitter. I’m CPR certified and I am very comfortable with pets! I love working with little ones, and am currently a student at UC Santa Cruz, where I’m studying psychology with an emphasis on early childhood development.
