Leslie’s Bio

I'm 27 years old, and with your permission, I want to help your child become the best version of themselves.

*I believe in turning off the television and turning on imagination.
*I believe in compassion, not criticism.
*I believe in shattering developmental milestones. I learned to read when I was 2 and 1/2 - children are capable of seemingly impossible fits if we challenge them everyday.
*I believe in treating your child like an adult, not like a child.
*Most importantly, I believe in trust, communication and respect.

I have a degree in Child Psychology from Virginia Tech and over 10 years of paid babysitting and nanny experience. I'm CPR and First Aid certified and I have excellent references. My future plans include medical school to become a pediatrician, a dream of mine since I was 3 years old. I have always known I wanted to be a doctor and combining my passion for medicine and my desire to work with children just makes sense. Because of this, I am also staunchly pro-vaccination.

I enjoy working with children who are curious about the world, who have a passion for learning, and who aren't content to sit in front of the television all day. I love taking children on adventures to museums, to the park, on hikes or nature walks. Young minds should be afforded every opportunity available to expand and grow and if I can have just a small part in that I want to.

This is just a small introduction to me and my babysitting style. I know I may be a bit unconventional, but I can assure you I am wholeheartedly passionate about the work that I do. I love children and working with them and I look forward to working and growing with your family. If you are interested in meeting me, please feel free to message me at any time. Thank you so much for your consideration! :)
