Lauren’s Bio

My name is Lauren and I'm a graduate of UCSB. Many would describe me as energetic, friendly, and caring. I'm patient, reliable, and an excellent multi-tasker having years of experience working with children as well as account/property management experience in the professional industry providing me with the invaluable knowledge of how to remain focused and get any job done no matter how hectic the circumstances may be. I love interacting with children, especially doing outdoor activities. I have a lot of experience as a babysitter, babysat during high school, worked for babysitting company in Santa Barbara during college, and then babysat from clients that have contacted me from sitter city. My childcare experience has also been as a nanny, daycare assistant, soccer trainer, and camp counselor. I am able to have fun with children and feel strongly about connecting with them so that a comfortable, trusting relationship can be built. I am more than happy assisting with homework as well as with other activities the children are involved in. Other traits that past families have found comfort in when having me care for their children is that I cared for my father at home who was terminal with cancer giving me in depth hands on medical experience as well as compassion and composure that is essential in daily life. Lastly, my deep love for animals is a plus for families that have them as I have worked in a vet, currently own 2 dogs, and have had an abundance of animals (from chinchillas to horses) throughout my life. With all my different life experiences I feel I am an open minded individual that respects and prides myself on working to instill the values that the families I work for find are important and am open/eager for feedback to help me improve so that all parties are happy with our relationship.
