Looking for work as a babysitter.

  • 7 years paid experience

Meet Shannon

  • Early Childhood Special Education Certification
  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

[Last updated 12/1/18] Hi everyone, welcome to my page! A little about me - I'm 24 years old and graduated last May from The University of Tennessee with a B. S. in Supply Chain. Just recently quit my full time position in Indianapolis, Indiana to move back home after being out of the state for 7 years (missed my family)! Until I find another full time position, I'm picking up babysitting and pet sitting gigs! Qualifications - I've taken Early Childhood Education (I & II), as well as Childhood Development courses. I'm also babysitter certified by Prince William Hospital, CPR and First Aid Certified. I'd be more then willing to help your child complete homework and study, or play games until their hearts content, because I strongly believe in interacting with the kids, and not just supervising them. My rates typically range between $12-$17.

Shannon took care of our two cats while on vacation for a week and she did a great job. Our one cat has some medical issues that requires daily medication. She was able to administer the pills everyday. Very responsible and great pet sitter!!

We loved having Shannon babysit our daughter. She was our #1 choice in sitters because she is super responsible/trustworthy and our daughter really enjoyed her. She will actually play games, do activities, or take your kids to the park versus some teens who are glued to their phones these days. We have recently moved out of state and will miss her dearly. Best of luck in college, Shannon! :) Kelley Brown ~ Ashburn, VA

Shannon is great with our 10 month old son! He is always happily playing with her when we return. Shannon is very responsive and timely as well...
