Hi there! [Update: I am on Winter Break living at home in Cedar Rapids & looking to babysit until Jan. 4] My name is Katie and I am a college student studying environmental science. I am CPR certified and am very pet-friendly! I have been babysitting my siblings since the age of 12 and for other families since the age of 16. I have experience with children ages 1-13 years and with up to 3 children at a time. I love getting kids outside enjoying the fresh air as often as possible, but I also have an assortment of crafts and games to call upon for those lazy, chilly days as well. Caring for young people gives me the chance to use my free time as a student to help families in need, and it's also a great way for me to remove myself from my to-do list every once Read more in a while. Please feel free to contact me with questions, references, etc.!
