Growing up I have always enjoyed children whether it was from just playing with them to just watching over them. I have been babysitting since I was 10 years old, watching both my little sister and cousin. As I got older I started doing more things working with children. For two years I taught 3 yr. olds at my churches children ministry. I had constant babysitting jobs looking after my mom's coworkers children. For a summer I worked as a camp counselor where I learned CPR and how to administer the Heimlich maneuver properly. During my sophomore year of college I started voluntarily working with a 3 year old severely autistic boy where I learned patience and different ways of handling a variety of situations. Today I have just graduated from college and I am about to attend graduate school to receive my masters as an art therapist. Working and Read more watching over children wouldn't be like another job for me, it would be me just enjoying their presence while doing somethings in between.

We book Pierra often. She is very flexible, fun, and my kids LOVE her. She jumps right in and makes it an easy transition.

Pierra connected well with my girls. She was "awesome", according to them. We appreciated her comfort with them and connection with us during the evening.

Pierra was AWESOME!! We were expecting a new addition to our family and therefore needed someone who was flexible. We have booked Pierra in the past for son and she was great with him. Within a matter of minutes, he went from shy to playing with her after she initiated the interaction. My husband and I are so glad that Pierra was willing to be so flexible and available for when we had to go to the hospital and we felt comfortable leaving her with our son. I highly recommend Pierra and we will be booking her again in the future.
