Amanda’s Bio

While I have no children of my own - between 6 young cousins, 2 younger brothers, 4 Godchildren & many friend's kids - I have been babysitting for 1O years. I am currently employed by Hope Community Resources Inc & Access Alaska, where I give care to children / adults who experience disabilites & medical issues / need assitance in their daily lives. With severe allergies of my own, I am experienced with special diets, allergy medicine and Epi-Pens.

I love taking care of people. Whether children or adults, I have always been inclined to help people in need. I have been in the caregiving field for the last 2 years, and because I love it so much I am currently going to school to be a CNA, earning my Medical Assistant Associates dregree, and then to Nursing school at UAA in the fall.

I love children! I have been very blessed with a large family and many friends who have children. I am up for anything the kids want to do - be it playing outiside(park or at home), reading, putting on plays, games, small trips, etc... I have a lot of energy and love keeping up with the young ones!

I can cook basic meals, will clean up after the children and myself during my stay, and I will do the children's laundry. While I am comfortable with pets, I am allergic to cats and short-hair dogs. With notice, I can take allergy medicine and be properly attired, as I get hives and rashes from their hair.
