Amanda’s Bio

Hi!! My name is Amanda, but I go by Mandy. I'm married and just recenently had my first child; in Feburary 2013. I'm 24 years old and have been babysitting since I was 11. I started by watching my youngest brother, who has Down Syndrome and a Trachetomy, while my parents were out and from there on I met familes through neighbors and friends to babysit for. I attended College of DuPage where I studied Business and babysitting on the side. I love kids and have the ability to comfort them so that Mom and Dad can go out with piece of mind. (I am certified in CPR and the Heimlich maneuver) I love to stay active with kids, but teach them along the way. I have actually been referred to as a "child whisperer" which I take as a compliment. I have a pretty flexible schedule, contact me for any additional information.
