I was the oldest child on both sides of my family. I became the babysitter for all my cousins. Some family members worked shift schedules, therefore I was responsible (at a very young age) to be overnight care for school age children. I prepared meals, conducted routines, walked to school and refereed! It came very natural to me and I was trusted to make good decisions in the absence of adults. Fast forward. I am a stable mature parent of a 13 year old boy, and for the record, they are NOT easier!! I recently returned to college part-time to finish my degree. I feel it is important to "walk the walk" when conducting myself. I get better results by doing, not saying. Most recently I provided private care to a younger child, in his home. He had separation anxiety when we first began working together. Over time, I gained Read more his trust. I used resourceful methods to introduce him to his community. We attended "story hour" at a local library, used the local playgrounds and walked in the community in addition to playing with toys, playdough, musical instruments, etc at home. He was a beautiful child when we met and blossomed into an even more beautiful child when he could feel comfortable around other people. My services extend past humans! I have been caring for a gentleman's dog over two years. His reference is on my profile. Each case is different. I look forward to an opportunity to lend my assistance in any way possible. Average hourly rate is based on typical business hours, evening rates will need to be adjusted. Any overnight considerations would need to be at my home.

I work shift work (12.5 hours) with travel time on either side. I have utilized Susan's services as follows - Susan stops by at a pre-determined time and lets the dog out. I have found Susan to be prompt, courteous and very reliable.
