My name Sashura, very unusually name but it's Russian and it stands for defender of mankind! I've been babysitting/nannying for the past 8 years. I'm currently a resident in Bridgeport, CT, but looking to relocate to the new York/ New Jersey area! I'm current a college student studying to become a therapist. I actually would love to become a child therapist! I like to cook but I love to bake! Beside becoming a therapist along the way, I want to open my own cupcake shop! A little about the family I've worked for; I started baby sitting at the age of 19 for this awesome woman I was introduce to, I started when her son was 2 months ago and I'm currently still working for her but not as much as before on and off every once in a while. I taught him how to read, count and say his Read more ABCs. I help him with potty training, riding a bike. I've worked with children with special needs and food allergies. In high school I got my CPR and completed MRI training. I also became a Licensed care giver. Working in the medical field gave me some insight on doing simple medical task like giving medication, taking temperatures and checking blood pressure levels.
