I live in San Jose in the Rosegarden area. I go to school at Willow Glen HS. I am pretty familiar in both areas, and would like to babysit in San Jose or Santa Clara.
|All ages||2||I am CPR certified and have experience with diabetes for 10 years. I have babysitted a diabetic family friend a few times and really liked it so I want to do more of that type of babysitting. I also have a reoccurring summer job with my swim team teaching lessons to kids between the ages of 3-13 so I am familiar with various ages of kids.|

I live in Woodside but am fairly mobile. Anything on the peninsula works fine and I can also get to the areas in/around San Jose.
|6 - 10, 10 and up||1, 2||I have a younger brother whom I've looked after on numerous occasions. I have experience tutoring and teaching in a classroom setting, and have taken several outdoors courses that require and give first aid experience. In addition, I'm training to become a pilot, and thus have undergone basic medical training specific to aeronautics. I am very well-versed in Minimed pumps and Dexcom CGMs, though I've also used hypodermic needles, pens, and all sorts of infusion sets. I've been diabetic since I was 6, so I've learned to count carbs, plan, adjust basal rates, and basically do anything that I'd or anybody else would need to do to maintain a stable blood sugar.|

|10/10/2016 4:46:35||Melissa Balick||Phoneemail@example.com||Female||Adult||I have T1D||Los Angeles||All ages||Any number||I have been babysitting full-time through UrbanSitter for 3 years as of this writing in October, 2016. I have 65+ five-star reviews from parents on that site. I have been lucky enough to have a couple type 1 kids I've sat for and we've really learned a lot from each other! I have had type 1 diabetes since I was 8. I have kept my a1c between 5.2 and 5.9 for many years though I have never had a pump or a continuous glucometer. But when I was a kid, my a1c was much higher and I did not take good care of myself or really even care. So I understand where your t1d kid is coming from -- they usually just want to play and not think about diabetes, which they can do with me. I also can help all you loving, worried parents out there reading this to feel more confident that your child will learn to undertake their diabetes care with confidence in the future! If you just want to talk about diabetes care, please don't hesitate to call or email me. I'm very interested in sharing experiences with type 1 families.|
