As a babysitter, I love to nurture & teach children how to live a fun life filled with gratitude & kindness. As a responsible & entrepreneurial young woman I began babysitting at the age of 11 & I was a gymnastics coach & camp counselor for 4 years during & after high school. In college at the U of MN I received my bachelor’s degree in Family Social Science & since then I have cared for many wonderful children from 2 weeks old to teenagers. As a hired care-giver, I understand the importance of keeping the children comfortable & safe, happy, well-fed, entertained & hopefully in bed on time. I love to take kids on walks nature hikes or even skiing, we get creative with art projects, I teach them yoga or perform for them with song & dance. I also know how good it feels to come home to Read more a tidy house, so I always try to clean for parents & I genuinely enjoy doing dishes, folding laundry or anything else that really helps you out. I am CPR, First Aid and Yoga Certified

Sarah Beth did a great job petsitting our puppy and kitties. She was flexible in her schedule, sweet-natured and patient with our furry creatures, and when we came home the anxiety level in the animal kingdom was as low as though we'd never gone. I know she does babysitting too and I'm sure she's just as conscientious with furless creatures who need love too. Thanks, Sarah Beth!
