I'm a recent UCSC graduate, staying in the area for my love of working farmer's markets and feeding myself and friends healthy food. I've spent three summers as a camp counselor, two of which were full-time day camps. From these counseling experiences, I've had a number of parents reach out to me as a babysitter beyond summer camp. Due to my full-time student and part-time employment status during my undergrad, I unfortunately lacked the time necessary to commit to childcare volunteering/employment. I am excited to volunteer at UCSC's Life Lab in the Winter 2018 quarter, and I hope to bring more light and learning experiences to my life and the young ones around me through babysitting again! I love to garden, cook, and hike, and teaching your young one(s) certain aspects of these skills would be my pleasure.
