Amber’s Bio

I am a graduate of the University of Illinois at Chicago with a master's in Criminology, Law and Justice.  I have been babysitting since the age of 12 and previous clients have ranged anywhere from3 weeks to 12 years of age.  My mother is a lisenced daycare provider so I have always been exposed to childcare and have signficant experience with children whether is was through child care, tutoring, swim team coach or gymnastics instructor.  I am a purple belt in Brazilian jiu jitsu and I'm a muay thai fighter so your children will always be safe with me. I work well with children and I feel that I am capable of handling any situation that may arise.  I am also certified in first aid and CPR and I work extremely well with pets.  If I possess the talents you are looking for in a childcare provider, please feel free to contact me!

She did a great job. This was our first sitter with Jake, and we both felt comfortable after meeting Amber. Jake kept to his sleeping schedule, which tells me there were absolutely no problems. I would definitely ask her to babysit again for us.
