Hello! My name is Anke and I'm brand new to the area, studying at Northeastern University, but originally from Nashville, TN. I love working with children and I'm always the one to be taking care of my younger cousins and family friends. I am particularly experienced with caring for elementary school-aged children, but I'm comfortable with others as well. I consider myself very outdoorsy and I'm a HUGE arts and crafts kind of girl! I used to volunteer in the children's section of the Nashville Public Library every week, plus my mother is a librarian (go libraries!!), so I'm always down for reading, and honestly I kind of enjoy children's books myself. I also have been playing the drums my whole life, so I love hanging out with some wild-childs! Whether your child is very shy or outgoing, I'm very adaptable to different personalities and I have taken Red Cross babysitting courses as well. If you are looking for a fun and patient care provider for your children, message me! I am more than comfortable to help with meal prep and any chores you may need help with around the house. I'm charging $18.00 and hour, minimally, and will be more than happy to answer any questions you have. Thank you for your consideration. I would love to meet your family!
