Amanda’s Bio

My name is Amanda Besinger, and I am looking for a part-time babysitting/nanny position. I currently babysit/nanny regularly for a few families, and absolutely love the "work."  I started with one of my families when the little boy was about 10 weeks old-- he just turned three last August, and I can't believe he's grown up so fast!
I graduated with honors from Hamilton College in 2006 with a double major in Theatre and Philosophy. I have a very creative mind, a happy disposition, and a soft spot in my heart for babies. I love to play with children, and to connect with them on their level. (Yes, even at only a few months old.) I come from a very large, close-knit family that always manages to have little ones around, and have been babysitting regularly since I was about twelve years old.
I am excited to see if I could be a good fit for your family, and look forward to hearing from you!
