My name is Alexandra, I come from a great and pretty big family. I will be turning twenty five in April. In high school I took all of the child development classes offered and even taught in the pre school our school offered once a week! I bonded with quite a few kids during that experience and actually got to meet the parents, which eventually lead me to babysit for one of the families over the summer. I have been working in the restaurant business since I was 16. But throughout the years have tried different positions such as a secretary for a small office, care giving position in which I looked after a woman in her young twenties diagnosed with Fredericks ataxia disease. Some of the job responsibilities were helping her shower, prepare meals, walking the animals, driving her to appointments, etc. I’m currently working at a restaurant in Read more downtown Hinsdale while in the process of applying for a flight attendant position. I am great with kids and I find working with them gives us back a little bit of our innocence we may have forgotten about as we age. If you give me a chance to come and meet with your family I assure you will not be dissapointed :)
