Looking for a babysitter 1-2 days/week or a sitter for date nights? I graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in psychology and emphasis in pre-medical studies. Through my undergraduate years, I volunteered at C.S. Mott Children's hospital providing Hematology and Oncology patients and their families with emotional and psychosocial support on an inpatient unit. I have gained invaluable experience at Mott that has given me extensive exposure to and knowledge of child development. I have a true talent and love for working with children, have an outgoing and bubbly personality and am extremely responsible and driven. I am currently pursuing my doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology to further my passion for working with children and adolescents as a pediatric psychologist. I currently serve on the Young Associates Board of Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, which is a non-profit committed to providing hope for Read more children with brain tumors. I have been a weekly babysitter for 10+ years for various families having children of all ages. I have always loved and find such joy in babysitting and spending time with kids! If you are interested, I would love to chat to see if I'd be a good fit for you and your family. Thanks so much!
