Meredith’s Bio

I am a reliable, caring, creative, and energetic 29-year-old female. I have always enjoyed children; it allows my 'kid-at-heart' to come out. I have over 17 years of experience sitting children ages newborn and up. I had the pleasure of working with kindergartners and first graders for three years as a camp counselor. I volunteered at an inner-city school tutoring children, working closely with behaviorally & academically (learning disabilities) challenged children. 
I have previously been certified by the American Red Cross in CPR and First Aid, as well as Water Safety Assistant and hold active certifications:                  * CPR certification- National Health & Safety Foundation and FirstAidWeb Inc.                  * First Aid certification- National Health & Safety Foundation and FirstAidWeb Inc.          
* Adheres to the same guidelines as the American Red Cross & The American Heart Association.
I live in downtown Boston. My current availability is during the weekdays after 5 p.m. and anytime during the weekends. I am more than happy to perform light housekeeping duties, home organization, laundry, meal preparation, occasional errands and any other ad hoc requests. I know my way around the kitchen, so well balanced healthy meals can be provided.  If you need a night out or someone to watch your children for a few hours, I am available.
