Amber’s Bio

Hi! I'm Amber & I'm 32 years old with over 15 years of experience working with children. I have had the privilege of working as a nanny, sitter, teacher & camp counselor working with children ranging in age from newborns up to early teens. I have no preference regarding age groups and am equally comfortable with all ages. I have three younger siblings, am the oldest of more than 30 cousins and simply enjoy working with kids. I obtained my BA in Psychology/Sociology with a minor in Family Studies in 2005. My courses consisted of classes such as Child Growth & Development, Marriage & Family Counseling, Psychology of Adolescence, etc.
I plan to have my own children one day when I start a family, but in the meantime I enjoy being a nanny & sitter because I believe that children deserve to have a kind & loving person caring for them while their parents are working or need time off. I will be there to play with, teach and care for the child/children to the very best of my ability while also enforcing the healthy boundaries already put into place by you, the parents.
A little about me: My friends consider me a fun-loving, easy-going person who is trustworthy, honest, spontaneous, passionate & loves to live and eat healthy! In my free time I enjoy reading, swimming, photography, bike riding, traveling, movie nights, Scrabble, picnics, boating, being at the beach, church and much more.
I believe a child should explore the outdoors & learn about the world instead of staying inside attached to the television or a computer. I love the English language and adore writing, expanding vocabulary, spelling, grammar, etc so if your child needs tutoring in those areas I would be more than happy to help! I believe in the importance of healthy eating & would strive to keep your children fed with healthy choices like whole grains/fresh fruits/veggies instead of junk food. I would be more than happy to do overnites as well because hard-working parents deserve date nights to themselves or just simply a night off.
I am also open to short notice jobs if a sudden need were to arise. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact me on Sittercity & I will respond promptly. Best wishes in your search!

Amber babysat our daughter weekly from the time she was 8 months old to the time she was 18 months old which included several months during which she babysat my daughter for 20-25 hours per week while I worked part time. Amber still babysits for us on occasion. My daughter is currently a little over 2 1/2 years old. So, I have known Amber for approximately two years now. Amber also did household tasks for me such as laundry, dishes, cleaning, errands, cooking, etc. I would highly recommend Amber. She has gone above and beyond with anything I have asked her to do. She has a natural ability to quickly and effectively build a loving, caring, and trusting relationship with my daughter. My daughter always looks forward to "Ms. Amber" coming over. Amber is very active and takes initiative to do fun and stimulating activities with my daughter including going for long walks, being outside, doing arts and crafts, reading books, doing puzzles, learning words, etc. Amber seems to genuinely enjoy being with my daughter and my daughter has learned so much from her. Amber is comfortable and confident in her abilities to interact with children as well as parents. She has a very calming demeanor. Amber is not just our babysitter but rather has become a part of our family. She is not just an amazing babysitter, but she is a wonderful person. We are so fortunate to have found her and we highly recommend her without hesitation.

Recommendation for Amber A.

I would echo Michelle R's comments about Amber. Amber was an absolute lifesaver for us. We needed someone last minute to watch our 11-month old daughter while our regular nanny was out for a family emergency. After talking with Amber on the phone, it was clear that she had a ton of experience and I trusted her immediately. Amber was extremely professional and even offered to come early so we could walk her through everything the first morning. It's always nerve-racking to leave your child with a new care-giver, but Amber kept in constant communication with me throughout the week and updated me on the status of everything. Amber has a great nature about her and my daughter took to her quickly. I also appreciated that Amber did a great job maintaining my daughter's daily schedule and routine. I highly recommend Amber and would definitely hire her again if the need arose.
