Sarah’s Bio

I come from a very large family in which I am the oldest in not only my immediate family, but of all of my cousins, so I spent my entire life raising kids and loving it. I've been babysitting for family and friends since I was 14, but started my first official job as a nanny the summer after my senior year of highschool, which consisted of taking care of 3 young girls while the parents were at work, as well as preparing meals, cleaning the house, tutoring and teaching music and dance. Since then I have consistently had nanny jobs while also going to school for Music Therapy. I love incorporating music, playing, nature and learning into my time with kids as these can be the most impact full years of their lives. My background in therapy allows me to connect and work with an array of personalities and my experience in music helps bring creativity and excitement into a child's daily life.

Also, for some reason the sittercity website is not loading my picture, but I will absolutely send one so you can verify that I'm a normal human being!
