Meet Amy

My name is Amy, I am 27 years old. I have been babysitting since I was 13. I first started off babysitting my younger brothers. I then branched off babysitting for family friends and people in the neighborhood. I have had multiple long term babysitting jobs varying from ages 6 months to age 12. I currently work in Human Resources as a Retirement Benefits/EEO Assistant. Perviously I worked in a school as a Special Education Aide. While working at the school I worked with age groups ranging from preschool to eighth grade. I loved watching the kids grow and learn and being the reason why they would love to come to class to learn, not only would I help them with school, but they would come to be as just someone to talk to. I had my boundaries and the kids knew that. The only reason why I left my Read more job was because I could not support myself with the pay that I was receiving. I speak fluent in English. I am a non-smoker and I have a clean driving record. I also love arts and crafts, watching movies, and music. In my spare time I like to organize and clean. I am also pet lover I have had various pets throughout my life. I grew up with 3 cats and a dog. Not only have I provided babysitting services, but pet sitting services as well. I love the experience of babysitting and getting to become a part of the families. I’d be happy to provide references as well as meet or chat on the phone. Looking forward to hearing from you!
