Tiffanie’s Bio

My Background: ♥  Hi, my name is Tiffanie B., I am 29 years old and live in the Walt Disney World (Kissimmee, FL) area.  I truly love children & pets. I have many years of experience when it comes to children and babysitting. I have a reliable car & carry a cell phone.  If I can help with homework I will.  I like going on outings...such as the movies, the park, on walks, etc. I really enjoy doing arts & crafts, playing games, etc... I do bring some of these things with me. I am a non-smoker and my home and car are smoke-free. I feel that I am different than a lot of other sitters out there in that I spend more quality time with your children rather than just being a supervisor that's there in case she's needed. I know that I am there to do what I can to take your place while you're away. I've added a background check to my profile so feel free to view it! I'm thankful to have had such a great experience using this site, I've met some really nice families in and around Orlando with some of the greatest kids! As you can see, my rate starts at $12.00 per hour, that is my typical rate for one child. Each additional child will add $1.00 - $2.00 per hour depending on age and total number of children. The rate is also dependent on other factors. Rates need to be negotiated and determined at the time of scheduling care. I have a minimum pay requirement of three hours per visit. Feel free to send me an e-mail message thru Sittercity to discuss scheduling. If you choose to call to schedule and I am unable to answer, please leave a voice message with your phone number and the best time to reach you and I will return your call as soon as possible.  I really appreciate families who leave a review on my profile regarding their opinion of the care I provided for their children! I always leave my own review on the parent profiles as well. It really helps both Parents and Sitters who read these reviews that may be considering working with you. My references are available upon request.  ♥ _________ My Sittercity Experience: I was asked by Sittercity if I'd like to participate in an interview with a journalist writing about the Sittercity service and to share some of the best experiences I've had with using Sittercity, I agreed and wanted to share the article with you! Since I am unable to post a website link on my profile I've copied and pasted the article below for if you'd like to take the time to read it.  THE INDEX-JOURNAL January 2, 2008 Need a Babysitter?  Now You Can Find One Online They say once you have a child, life will never be the same. Ask any parent and they'll tell you it's definitely true. Sleep, which you used to treasure, turns into a commodity you trade back and forth with your spouse. Things that used to be easy to do, like going shopping, are all of a sudden a chore; and forget about the things you used to love doing on a whim, like going out to dinner or a movie. First you have to find a babysitter -- something that's easier said than done for a lot of people.  After their son, David, was born a little more than six years ago, Kelly and Henry Cooper of Winter Park, Fla., pretty much put their life as a couple on hold. "David was born with cerebral palsy, epilepsy and autism, and because we have a special needs child, we just didn't feel comfortable leaving him with a babysitter," says Kelly. But that changed recently thanks to a concept developed by Genevieve Thiers of Boston. She and the Coopers have never met, but they are just one of the thousands of families she has helped through Sittercity.com, a Web site she created in 2001 after coming to the astute realization that parents were as desperate to find trustworthy local caregivers as they were to find a magic pill for endless energy. With an armful of 20,000 flyers, Thiers hand-delivered the Sittercity message to over 12 major Boston-area colleges. Not only did she find herself with an unprecedented amount of customers, she also found 600 eager babysitters in the first three weeks! The site has now expanded to service families in most of the 50 states. Kelly Cooper first learned about Sittercity.com from a segment on the Today Show. A few weeks later, recognizing the logo, she clicked on one of their banner ads on a parenting Web site and decided to give it a try. She read through all the profiles and picked a young lady who had been a National Merit Scholar and seemed very responsible. "I wrote to her, she wrote back, and we had her come out and sit a couple of times. She worked out great, but then summer came and she was no longer available," remembers Cooper. Turns out that was a blessing in disguise for the Cooper family because the next sitter they found through the site was an even more perfect fit. "I posted the fact that I needed a sitter for a special needs child on the site and Tiffanie B. was the first to respond. She was articulate in her e-mail and on the phone, and I was very impressed with her professionalism," says Cooper. But even more impressive was how well Tiffanie clicked with David and his little brother. "Usually when I ask David a question, he doesn't respond, but the next morning when I asked if he had a good time with Tiffanie, a smile came to his face. Then I asked if he wanted her to come back he said, 'Oh yes!' That has never happened before."  "I've sat for them a handful of times and so far have had a great relationship. I just love those little boys to death. They're very sweet. I'm so grateful to Sittercity.com for bringing us together," says Tiffanie, 24, who is pursuing a degree in elementary education at a college in Orlando. "I recommend this service highly to anyone who needs a sitter," adds Cooper.  _________ Additional information: I also decided to post these vital & extremely important First Aid and CPR tips from the American Red Cross.  In stressful emergency situations it is easy to become confused and excited which may cause wasted time or incorrect care. Please read this short list, I know you'll get something out of it! 1.)   The Cardiac Chain of Survival consists of a sequence of steps that are activated in response to an emergency in which a person suffers sudden cardiac arrest. Each link in the chain is critical.  The following is the correct order for the Cardiac Chain of Survival:    A) Recognize the situation as an emergency and call 9-1-1 or local emergency number.   B) Start CPR to keep oxygenated blood flowing to vital organs such as the brain and heart.   C) Use an automated external defibrillator (AED), if possible, which delivers electrical current to the heart by administering a shock that can restore an effective heart rhythm. In many states, AEDs are now available in public places for use by trained laypersons.    D) Early advanced life support — a team of professionals arrives and takes over by providing advanced care at the scene and transporting the victim to a hospital.   FACT: In the past year, 220,000 Americans died of sudden cardiac arrest, almost one every two minutes. A quarter of these deaths could likely have been prevented if an automated external defibrillator (AED) had been available for immediate use at the time of the emergency.   For every minute that a person in cardiac arrest goes without being defibrillated, the chances of survival decrease by 10 percent.
2.) If you happen upon an unconscious adult it is considered an emergency situation and you need to know the three basic steps to take, they are known as  CHECK-CALL-CARE :    A) Always check to make sure the scene is safe for you and any bystanders. B) Call 9-1-1 or your local emergency number for help. C) Care for the victim. Always care for life-threatening emergencies before those that are not life-threatening. Knowing the ABCs, which stands for Airway, Breathing and Circulation, will aid you in determining what care the victim needs...Determine if the victim's airway is open and check for signs of life such as movement and breathing.   3.) The correct place to check the pulse of a child is:  The side of the neck. The side of the neck is the easiest and strongest area on the body for most people person to find and feel for a pulse, however as your next resort you can also check for a pulse at the wrist.
FACT: The following are signals of a heart attack  Persistent chest pain or discomfort, Breathing difficulty, Nausea or vomiting, Pale or bluish skin color, and Moist or sweaty skin. Seek medical attention immediately if you experience any of these signals for more than three to five minutes or if they go away and come back within a short period of time. These are the most common indications of a heart attack, but not the only ones.  4.) If a choking person is coughing forcefully you might think to slap or even hit them on the back, but here is what you should really be doing:   Patting or slapping someone on the back can actually make the person gasp for air and force the object further down the throat.  If a person is coughing forcefully, he or she will likely cough up the object and abdominal thrusts will not be necessary. Abdominal thrusts are called for when there is no air exchange and the person cannot speak, cough forcefully or breathe.
FACT:  If you are alone with a child who has stopped breathing, your first instinct may be to call 9-1-1, however, a child has a much smaller amount of reserve oxygen in his or her body, so it is very important to give rescue breathing as soon as possible - you need to give TWO MINUTES of care then dial 9-1-1.
5.) To perform rescue breathing on an infant or child, give 1 breath every 3 seconds.   An infant or child needs less air but needs it more often — 1 breath every 3 seconds.
6.) CPR is a combination of chest compressions and rescue breaths:  Chest compressions help to circulate oxygenated blood to the vital organs. Rescue breathing supplies the brain and blood with oxygen until advanced medical personnel arrive and take over.
