Meet Mackenzie

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

Hi my name is Mackenzie and I am currently a nursing student at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, but will be returning home to Mt. Prospect for Christmas break. I am 20 years old and have been nannying or babysitting children outside of my family since I was 12 years old (they said I was a very mature 12 year old). I have worked with a number of families with children aged anywhere from 2 months to 11 years old and loved every minute of it! I started babysitting on nights or weekends after school when I was in the seventh grade, and continue to have a relationship with that family today. Over the years I have helped the children with school work and daily activities as well as using my own car to pick them up from school and bringing them to after school activities or summer camps. Read more In the past I have had three different families who I have worked with as a full day nanny during the summer while the parents went to work and the children were out of school, so I have plenty of experience with full day care and love planning activities to keep the children active and occupied throughout the day! As I mentioned earlier I have helped families with children as young as 2 months old and have taken care of multiple children under the age of 1, and would consider myself to have an ample amount of experience with infants. With most of my child care opportunities I have assisted the families with meal prep, household maintenance, and running errands. I also have plenty of experience with animals, as my family has four dogs, so pets are no problem for me! Taking care of children is something I have been passionate about for a number of years, and plan to continue pursing in my future career in the health industry, as helping care for other people's children has played such a large role in my life this far and I hope to continue to have a positive impact on children's lives!
