“Living in Colorado was always a dream of mine due to my passion for the outdoors. I have been to twelve national parks and the list keeps on growing! I believe in providing children with a fun and active experience. Depending on age level, I think it is very important for children to be active in this day and age with technology so prevalent. I think each family is different in their preferences and it is important for a sitter to be flexible and understanding to the family they are caring for. Safety is my number one priority; I believe it is most crucial to be vigilant and aware of the children’s safety in all situations. While caring for children, I love to immerse myself in the outdoors and all that this world has to offer. It’s so rewarding to educate children about their surroundings and watch them grow. That is what I love the most about being a sitter!”
