Professionally: I am a graduate student at the Chicago Portfolio School studying Art Direction. Currently, my classes are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday from 6-9pm. I also have my Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from Marquette University. Nanny Experience: I had the privilege of nannying for two little boys (ages 1 and 5) in Chicago from April 2013 - April 2014. Since the age of 11, I have been babysitting/caring for children. I love to read, perform music (sing, piano, guitar, ukulele), do creative arts and crafts, bake, DIYs, and stay active (work out, recreational volleyball, run). This translates well when coming up with fun activities for kids to do. I love being active at the park with children, and I love coming up with nutritious snacks for the kids to enjoy! I currently babysit for a couple families on and off in the city, but am also available for short Read more notice babysitting as well! I look forward to hearing from you and discussing my qualifications further.
