Carol’s Bio

I was born and raised in Virginia. In December 2010 I graduated from the College of Charleston with a degree in Political Science and Communication Studies. Since finishing school, I have moved to DC and now work full time during the week doing international marketing. I am available in the evening and on weekends and can normally make myself available even on short notice. I love children and I'm eager to help! There's something so refreshing about being able to put away the stresses that come with being an adult and instead go to the park, play dress up, kick a soccer ball and simply enjoy the little things in life.

A little background information:
Having a sister 4 and a half years younger than me, I began my "career" as a babysitter early in life.  I then moved on to be a mother's helper to a couple neighborhood families.  Upon entering my teen years I began to babysit for a number of families in the area. I enjoyed being around children so much that I found myself seeking out volunteer opportunities to prolong my time spent "playing".  I volunteered in my church nursery (newborns to age 4); I taught First and Second grade Sunday School; I led an afterschool homework club for ESL students at a local middle school; I was a mentor through the Big Brothers, Big Sisters Program for two years.  I did all those things simply because I enjoyed them.  Being around children is a delight for someone my age.  They are so carefree and fun and it brings me right back to my pre-highschool/college days.  The summer after my freshman year of college, I was a nanny for 3 young boys.  It was one of the best summers of my life. My sophmore year of college, I worked as an afterschool teacher for 4-6 year olds at Charleston Catholic School.  In the summer and fall of 2008, I worked as a nursery helper and assisted with a Sunday school class each week at St. Michael's Episcopal Church. My final two years of college, I babysat for 4 local families on need-to-need basis. After graduating I had the opportunity to serve as a temporary live-in nanny for a wonderful family (met through Sittercity!) in Northern Virginia with 22 month old twins. Shortly after moving to DC in 2013, I connected with a wonderful family over Sittercity and continue to watch the now 10 year old on an regular, as needed, basis. In addition, I was connected through friends, to a young family in my neighborhood with a 2 year old son who I watch on an occasional basis.
