Lorna’s Bio

Hi family!
I'm here on sittercity to pick up an occasional gig to care for your kiddos. I used to a be a full time and part time nanny, with children ranging from newborns - teens. I have the most experience nannying with infants and toddlers.

Currently I work for Whole Foods as a Culinary Instructor for ages 3-adult. I have loads of experience with elementary and middle school aged children in this area of work, as I help lead Cooking Camps for ages 6-13 all summer long.

In addition to these job qualifications, I have the following related work experiences:

* After school program volunteer with Sandbox preschool
* Tutor for Latin School Chicago
* Camp Counselor for Camp Laurel South (Maine)
* Personal Chef - specializing in infant and toddler food/special diets/allergies
* Chef Instructor for Life Skills Educators Camp

Overall, I really enjoy being a fun, attentive, and caring babysitter for children. I can kick it with athletic kids and hang outdoors all day, or paint nails and play boards games with kids who need some chill time :).

I love being healthy, reading stories, playing games, helping with homework, cooking dinner, building forts, going to the park, and just being a good role model.

I currently work 2-3 days a week and am taking on babysitting and personal chef positions until the end of October, when I will begin working for a new restaurant.

Ideally, I am best fit for someone who needs a temp until they find a full time/part time nanny or as a fill in for child care. Date nights and weekends are fair game, too. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you!

Lorna has been watching our boys (3, 2, and 7 months) part time for the last 1-1/2 months. We are still early on in our working relationship, but so far are absolutely thrilled. She is reliable and is great with the kids. She seems to handle the "bad" days quite well and is great at communicating back to us. She plans fun projects for the older two and is very comfortable handling the baby. So far so good!
