Hi! My name is Sarah and I am a 29 year old writer living in Arlington, VA. Happy to travel as I have my own car. I have a small fur family of dogs and cats, but no kids of my own yet. I'm currently looking for occasional work, like date nights or 1-2x/week, or a steady part time nannying job during the week. I am also in graduate school at the moment at Marymount University working toward my second Masters degree. I worked as a nanny all throughout college in Arlington, and still babysit for two of the families regularly. The kids were even in my wedding! I just adore them, and couldn't say goodbye. In grad school, I studied child psychology, apprenticed with top child psychologists in the area, and received my first Masters degree from Marymount University. I have also worked as a workshop instructor training au Read more pairs in child development, discipline techniques, and stress management. I continue to babysit families in the Arlington/Alexandria area today. I also currently work from home as a writer and marketing consultant. My schedule is very flexible since I work from home and make my own hours. I have a reliable car, spotless driving record, and am happy to drive kids around if needed. I do not smoke, and I am fine around family pets. I have worked with children of all ages and needs including infants, children with allergies, children with physical, emotional, or mental struggles and I am comfortable with taking care of several kids at a time. I can provide references from families I babysit for.
