Meet Abbie

Hi! My name is Abbie Guthrie. I'm from Anderson, IN originally, but I'm currently living in Logan Square in Chicago. I'm also a Ball State University graduate (May 2017). After graduation, I spent 9 months as an au pair in Australia for an amazing family! After that, I traveling solo for 2.5 months in Asia (Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam). It was an incredible experience! Now that I'm home, I want to be a reliable, fun and responsible resource for your family for the summer! --I am available full time ASAP until the end of August (when I will start Graduate School)! My babysitting experience started when I was thirteen. I was the primary babysitter for two families with kids from ages of 15 months to 13 years old. I was CPR and First Aid certified two years ago, but that just expired. I was also certified as a lifeguard and Read more swim teacher two years ago! I love swimming, and going to the pool is one of my favorite summer activities! My favorite activities to do with kids include: making forts, playing tag/hide and seek, and playing all types of board games! (SORRY! is my personal favorite.) I'm also a big fan of limited screen time, so I love spending a lot of time outside whether that be running around, riding bikes, or even playing with chalk to exercise our creativity!
