Ms. Mika

[MEE-kuh]

Birthday: May 17th

Hometown: Manchester, Jamaica

Favorite Crayola color: Cerulean Blue

Background: I am currently a student at Florida State University, majoring in Family and Child Sciences. I have been babysitting since I was 13 years old. As the eldest child in a very large family, I grew up caring for children. I have cared for newborns and children up to 10 years old. I also have formal experience working in my local church, back home, and in a hospital. I am CPR and First Aid certified and currently working on DCF and Medical Assistant certifications. I appreciate positive communication with parents to ensure that their child/children have the best experience when in my care.

She’s cared for children as young as: Newborn

Future plans: After graduating, I plan on pursuing a master’s degree in Child Life and obtaining my Child Life Specialist Certification.

When she's not babysitting: In my spare time I volunteer at the TMH Childcare Center, other times I’m in class or I’m at my second job. I also enjoy reading and baking.

Defining quote: "My past has not defined me, destroyed me, deterred me, or defeated me; it has only strengthened me." - Dr. Steve Maraboli

The sitters have been meeting expectations and have been very helpful. We also appreciate how nice Mika is to our cat! The cat waits for her every night now.
