Laura’s Bio

I am a 30 year old artist who just moved from Silverlake to Sierra Madre. whooo. I'm from Albuquerque originally, where I frequently sat on kids and had a great time doing it. I need to work, but I can't deal with office politics and sedentary jobs anymore or feeling that my time is being wasted. That's definitely *not* how i feel with children. I like running around and being creative. I know first aid and don't panic in tough situations. I also feel that kids often just want some respect, and they'll do most things if you give them a good reason and communicate openly.
I have been working regularly for a few families here in the LA area and have met some really great parents and kids. In general I'm not a meat eater, except for some occasional fish. I have no problem being around it or handling though (my main issues have to do with factory farming). I'm comfortable working in a more holistic family environment and am familiar with attachment parenting. I was also raised Montessori (with a good dose of public school later on), and have learned a lot about Waldorf in the last year. :)
Thank you for your time!

We LOVE Laura!!
Laura has babysat our toddler several times over the last year and our family just adores her, especially my son. She is prompt and communicative and takes great care of him. She likes to play and be silly and has a great sense of humor. She is always the first person we call when we need a sitter--I can not recommend her highly enough :)

Laura is an excellent babysitter. She began sitting for my son when he was 3 mo., staying with him all day while I was at work. As a first-time mom, I was nervous about finding a babysitter I would be comfortable with, but I found that in Laura. She is very calm, responsible, and playful and silly with my son. He loves her! She is also very responsive to the individual needs and style of both my son and our home- I always feel like he is getting the best care when he is with her. I would highly recommend Laura to other moms.
