Meet Alissa

Hi! My name is Alissa and I've been caring for children since I was about 13, when I took a babysitting course through Mary Greeley Medical Center in Ames, Iowa. I have experience with children of all ages, and would be comfortable caring for multiple children at one time. I'm CNA and CPR certified and have a year of experience working in a nursing home. I'm also a member of the Hawkeye Sparkles club where we work with kids with special needs weekly. I'm compassionate, patient, responsible, committed, and diligent. I love kids and I hope to be a pediatric nurse after I graduate from the University of Iowa. As a babysitter my goal is to guide and teach children in a warm and positive environment.
