Meet Leah

  • Certified Nursing Assistant

Hello! My name is Leah Bostaph, and I am about to end my freshman year at Radford University, where I am studying to be a nurse. I love working with children, and I have been actively babysitting since I was 13 years old. I have a younger sister who is 11 years younger than me who I have helped raise alongside my parents. When I was a junior and senior in high school, I watched 3 boys during the summer, and put them on the bus before school as well as getting them off the bus every other day. I also have been babysitting for kids in my neighborhood for years. I would be happy to help teach your children their letters, or age appropriate learning, as well as just fun activities with your children. I also am CPR and first aid certified, as well as trained to act in Read more the emergency of a child choking. I have babysat children with allergies, and am trained in using an epi-pen. I used to work for VCU Health's surgical trauma floor, so I am able to stay calm in stressful situations, in the event that they should occur. I have never received a speeding ticket, or any other traffic violation, in the event I should be required to transport your children anywhere (Children are very precious cargo!!). I would love the opportunity to look after your kids! Thank you, Leah Bostaph My Email is, if you would like to reach out to me! Thank you.
