Meet Lori

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

I grew up babysitting from the age of 10. (I know in this age hard to believe). Right now I am a children’s entertainer for a living and mostly work with kids between the ages of 3-8. I love what I do but when times are slow it would be nice to pick up a babysitting job here and there. Pretty much last minute calls. I can certainly keep the kids entertained, since that’s what I do. I’m a great balloon artist, so that’s a bonus for kids over the age of 3. I am very creative at keeping kids easy weather that be crafts, games and more. I am best with kids over the age of 18 months. Those that can walk and talk. I am a volunteer scuba diver at the Shedd Aquarium every Thursday and have for 27 years. I am very active and currently compete in Read more Masters Swimming events. I am First Aid and CPR trained and always keep that current.
