Meet Maria

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

Hi there! My name is Maria A and I am a sophomore attending Harper College with plans to major in health and nutrition. My end goal is to become a personal trainer or gym teacher for young ones. Since I was 14, I’ve babysit and nannied for several families. I have experience with children of all ages. I live a relatively active lifestyle, so I really enjoy taking the kids to trips to the pool and walks in the park but really anything that will get them out of the house and playing in the fresh air. For one family in particular, the hours were very sporadic with times ranging from 6am to 9pm on certain occasions. Some days they would need me to prepare lunches for the following school day, ask me to help out with the laundry and tidy up the house, or take the dog for a Read more walk because they simply did not have the time. Not only do I have experience with children, I have also worked with the elderly and people with disabilities at Alexian Brothers Assisted Living Home as a culinary host all throughout high school. I feel that with my experienced past, I would be a wonderful sitter for your family. If you’re interested in learning more about me and my experience as a caregiver, I would be more than happy to provide you with references and more information. The best way to reach me is cell phone number 1-708-822-8585. I look forward to speaking with you!
