Laura’s Bio

I truly enjoy caring for others. Over the past few years I have primarily cared for children. I've decided to expand my client base to include adults.
I worked for several years with a local Jacksonville agency, Senior Helpers, and did enjoy that very much. I am starting to see a need on this website for adult care giving. I have been on the website since 2011 doing short term baby sitting and have met some great families and have several that I care for their kids on a regular basis. I still have a lot of free time and I'm very flexible and dependable. I'm a positive, down to earth person with a lot of patience and a great listener! I enjoy cooking, running errends, driving, whatever needs you have I can usually help with. I love animals too! Right out of high school I was an L.P.N. for several years. Those are skills you have for life. One of my children had cystic fibrosis so I am very health oriented and up to date on first aid & CPR.

After a lovely in person and phone interview we decided to hire Laura. She came and did a test day with our family which went well. She called out sick the next day and then proceeded to quit via text message. Seeing that she has been online the same day she quit, presumably looking for other jobs. We could not in good conscience recommend a family to hire her.

Laura watched our house and took care of our cat (George) for 10 days while we were away at winter break. George is like a child to us, so we wanted the best. Laura was terrific. She was enthusiastic and responsible, and she responded immediately when we texted her a few times. And, as someone with 3 cats of her own, she came "cat certified"! We highly recommend her.

We are so happy we found Laura! Her availability is great, even last minute!! My kids are always so happy to see her! She is very punctual and always has the energy to play board games, do crafts, and just have fun with all 3 of my kids! I would highly recommend Laura to any other family that needs a sitter!!
